In the kitchen with Sharon this week I have Leslie Lightner. Leslie made her delicious Swedish apple pie. It looks so delicious Leslie. I wish I had a piece right now with a dip of ice cream on top. I really think you should make one and let me sample it.

Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe.
