Perfect! This was just what I was looking for... friends parents were visiting, and her dad always ordered French Apple Pie if it was on the menu, so I told her I'd make one. I substituted Craisins for the raisins, and her Dad said it was the best one he's ever had.
Oh, my goodness was this good. Have been looking for a recipe like this and was lucky to find this one. I used Fugi, Ambrosia and Granny Smith apples. It brought back childhood memories of the old fashion french apple pie with white glaze and raisins. Loved the combination of the nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Thanks for sharing.
Just made this recipe on 12/2/2012. I followed it almost exactly. I used 7 apples and used a variety of them (Granny Smith, Gala, Red Delicious). This was beyond good and I was asked for the recipe - which I of course shared :) Thanks. This is now part of my most favored dessert recipes!!!
My Mom got this same recipe from a baker in Alexandria Va. and I have loved this pie for 74 years. We THANK YOU ,I for got about the orange juice. Some time I use run other than orange
WOW, great recipe. Thanks so much for sharing :)
Awesome recipe - the best pie I've ever made!
I made this for Thanksgiving. Even though I forgot the OJ, it was very good.
