 blend. Add to apples and toss until a
 pples are coated. Put into above crust. We always bake, cool, and freeze. Befor

 Mix frosting ingredients and drizzle over cool top.
 This is so good. A slice with ice cream is heavenly. We fianlly have this down 
 to an assembly to make it becasue it is so popular. NOTE: My MIL used to have a
 n apple tree and made these every fall . We would still be eating them in the s
 pring at Easter, so I know this recipe freezes a long time. She always got rave
  reviews for this one.
