Personal Notes:
I named this because I asked Uncle Bug for his favorite pie one year and I told him I'd bake it for him as a birthday gift. Well I never had heard of a "french Apple Pie" before so I did a bit of internet searching and found this recipe. It has a great flavor, the apples are crisp and the crumb topping is to die for. I use my pampered Chef 9" stone pie dish and it is quite a heafty pie!
