This is a simple and easy pie..not from the usual apple pie...which I'm sure is a favorite with everyone :-D
This is more in the line of savory...and takes the place of a nutritious and delicious meal. The decorating itself will want the kids to dig in ....even though adults will want to savor the beauty of it ;-)
