From A Passion for Baking, Marcy Goldman, Oxmoor House 2007 (check the book for the gorgeous photo of this amazing recipe). This is a near-instant flash of a pie that is as good as the best pastry-shop offering. It uses two frozen piecrusts, shredded apples or regular wedges of apples (but if you shred them you don't have to peel them), and an oven—all for a pie that is ready in barely an hour. You can make Smash Pie with peaches, apricots, blueberries, or almost any fruit filling you choose. It is also aka First Apartment Pie, Bachelor Apple Pie, Baking Neophyte Pie, People Are Coming And I Forgot Dessert Pie - you name it - it resolves any sweet tooth.
