Do you ever crave the comfort of a homemade apple pie but are too lazy to go through all the tedious steps to make one? Well, next time you get that craving, come right back to this super easy apple pie recipe that honestly anyone could make. The trick to making it easy? Forget about that crust.

The most difficult part about it is probably cutting the apples, but trust me, it is well worth it. The serving amount may say 12 people, but my four friends and I finished the entire tray in no time. I'd suggest maybe drizzling on some caramel sauce or even adding some whipped cream too.
