  • cups graham cracker crumbs, about 10 cracker sheets
  • 6 tablespoons (85g) butter, melted


  • 1 package (3 ounces) lemon jello
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • cups water
  • 5 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced

Pudding Mixture

  • 1 package (3 ounces) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • ¼ cup water
  • whipped topping, optional for serving



  1. Add the melted butter to the graham cracker crumbs and, using a fork, mix well. You want every crumb coated in the butter as this will be the glue that holds it together.

  2. Pour the graham cracker crumbs into a 9-inch pie dish. Pat them flat with your hand and then use a kitchen glass to press flatter. Start at the center and work out to and up the sides.

Apple Filling

  1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add jello, apple pie spice, 1½ cups water, and apple slices. Mix together until every apple is coated.

  2. Bring the mixture to a boil. Then, reduce heat to medium-low and cover.

  3. Simmer 8-12 minutes, or until apples are tender. (You may need to stir occasionally.)

Pudding Mixture

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together pudding mixture and water.


  1. Pour pudding mixture into apple mixture and stir to combine. You should see the mixture start to thicken immediately. Continue cooking until thickened, stirring occasionally (about 1 minute).

  2. Pour apple mixture into crust and let it sit for about 5 minutes before putting it into the refrigerator to chill for about 3 hours.

  3. Top with whipped topping and serve.
