Comment on Amish Apple Butter is now gourmet by Erik/Amish America.
Snitz is an apple-based pie which is typically eaten by Lancaster Amish during the after-church meal. It is not so commonly sold to the public, but you can sometimes find it in shops in the Lancaster County area.
It’s made from dried apples actually–which is somehow turned into a very smooth apple filling (through some culinary magic that is beyond my ability). It is simple and very tasty. Here is a post on Snitz pie from a while back, which includes a recipe: http://amishamerica.com/snitz-pie/
Snitz is probably my favorite Amish-made pie. And Marilyn glad you asked–we actually had snitz pie come up on the blog a few weeks back but you might not have caught it then.
