Apple Slab Pie

I love perfectly fluted pie crust with nicely woven dough as much as the next girl, but that's as long as I'm not making it, you know? I love this recipe because it's a step up from an apple crumble but so much simpler than an apple pie. Plus it's sweetened with only a little honey and the natural sugars from locally grown apples

    This recipe needs an extra quantity of butter : i think you said the current method can’t have two listings of the same ingredient?

      Yeah! That’s something that would really help the recipes, if we could have the same ingredient listed multiple times (butter in cake, butter in frosting, etc…)
