Save Room for an apple fluff pie recipe

Here’s a recipe from my Joy of Desserts archives. Apple sauce is available year round and apples are in season, even if they are also available year round these days, so it’s a nice recipe to bring back to the surface. I like to dig into other blogs’ archives too, because there are so many great things just waiting to be discovered. If you don’t already do the same, give it a try sometime.
