I have been making this for years. Here are the changes I have perfected.
- Make fresh dough for two pies.
- Use a lasagna pan or baking dish.
- Organic strawberries and organic apples
- Sugar is half Stevia and half regular
- Mixture sits in bowl about 30 minutes with cinnamon sprinkled on top.
- Line oven with foil for spills.
- I serve it with pure vanilla ice cream.
