Not Your Regular Apple Pie

I have been looking forward to making this one with you. It is a cross between a Dutch Apple Pie and an Apple Strudel. It has a lovely crisp sweet crust base, a crunchy topping and a delicious strudel filling. So it’s a bit of a hybrid.
Hope you enjoy the recipe. Take care and be safe……
