Unbelievably Good Shredded Apple Pie


Shredded Apple Pie is not something I'd heard of until I tried this delicious pie. The consistency of course is different than a traditional apple pie, but the taste is different as well. Eggs in the shredded apple mixture create a really wonderful flavor. My mother commented that the texture and taste reminded her a bit of pecan pie, which I agree on.


This is a very sweet pie indeed. I think you could safely get away with cutting the sugar down to one cup, if you prefer. But I wouldn't try to reduce it too much to make it healthy. It is a sweet pie and trying to make it a non sweet, "healthy" pie sorta defeats the purpose.


I was blown away at how good this pie was. Enjoy!
