  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Will You Try the No-Bake Apple Pie?

I used Granny Smith apples in this recipe, but you can really use any apples you like. The texture will be different, but just as good. One more tip before I sign off: I like to keep the apple peel, but it’s optional. If you want to remove it, the recipe will also work.
