Lazy Apple Pie
To be honest, apple pie is one of my favorite desserts. Especially if is hot and served with vanilla ice cream. I made my own version of apple pie and this is the combination of Serbian and American way of making. In Serbia, name for this pie is "Lazy Apple Pie" and it's old traditional way of preparation. It's very easy for making, with ingredients which are not expensive and usually we are all having in our home.
