This recipe was really easy and very delicious! I've never made a pie before, and it came out perfect. Thanks for sharing!
Great apple pie recipe. I really like the lower, longer baking time. Less watching and it came out fine. I used Granny Smith's and the Pillsbury crust. With tart apples the sugar was the right amount. Taste your apples - if they are sweet, reduce the sugar a bit - this is a good rule for any apple pie recipe. The only thing I did differently was to mix all the filling up in a bowl and then put it in the crust - instead of layering. It is so good, we are having apple pie for breakfast.
Very easy to make and tastes delicious. I used a full teaspoon of cinnamon instead of a pinch. Served this warm with vanilla ice cream and my family devoured it. Thank you for sharing!
