Candy Apple Walnut Pie

Here's another of Mommy-in-law's specialties.  It's got the yummy flavor and color of a candy apple without the sticky, icky mess.  It's really easy to make...and polish off.  Try this out for your Christmas dessert!

Candy Apple Walnut Pie

6 cups thinly sliced cooking apples
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup cinnamon candies
1/3 cup and 2 Tbs. sugar
1/3 cup flour
2 deep dish frozen pie crusts (keep 1 frozen)

In large bowl, toss all but 2 Tbs. sugar and pour into pie crust.  Crumble second crust into small pieces (thawed one) and add 2 Tbs. sugar.  Toss together.  Sprinkle on top of apples.  Bake at 375 degrees 55-60 minutes.  Note:  Pie shell will be really full, but it cooks down, so don't worry!
