I made this for my family for Thanksgiving and they LOVED it so much I was asked to make it again for Christmas!

I was less than excited about this recipe. Peeling and slicing the apples took a REALLY long time and the end result for me was just okay. I added a 1/4 salt in the crust and should have in the apple mixture because it was a bit bland. Also, I should have cooked it longer I thiknk. HOWEVER, my kids absolutely LOVED it! My youngest actually wanting me to "teach her how to make it when she grows up"...I think it could have been improved by the simply adding a drizzle of caramel sauce accross the top.

WOW! This was fast prepared!
Your recipe for the shortbread is perfect, you will be sure that I will use this even for other pies!
I'm lucky to have a lot of apples ans I have been lucky as well to find your recipe here.
This recipe can be adjusted to different tastes for exaple simply changing the spieces or adding some berries or sultanas.

Hello again, This evening I had to make a very fast dessert. BUT no Apples! But I loved this recipe, so I used 1 -21 oz. Can and 1 -15. oz. can of cherry pie filling. This was an emergency!! It worked great, My husband loved it. So if you have a emergency like I did, you could use canned pie filling too!

This is easy to make. I don't have a food processor so I used a pastry blender to combine for my crust. It is a little dry, like shortbread is, so the whipped cream is a nice touch. I made this for our St Patrick's Day dinner.

Wonderful! Love the shortbread crust! I used three Granny Smith apples in a springform pan. Next time I will use four apples to make it a little fuller in the springform pan. I dotted the top of the apples with butter before sprinkling the remaining crust mixture over the filling. Yummy! Made for PRMR.

This pie is quite nice because of the shortbread crust, the butter flavour really comes through. I used Mutsu apples because that is the type of apple that I have on hand. I also used a springform pan as I thought that I could pile more apples onto the crust. I was able to add a few more apple slices but I had a bit of a problem with the crust becoming "wet". I think that the problem could have been averted had I followed the instructions. This is a wonderful pie and we all enjoyed it. Thanks for posting a new family favourite Ellie.

This was really good. Not as sweet as other pies, but I served it at my ladies luncheon and it was a big hit. Thanks for sharing!

So much easier than regular apple pie with the crust, yet just as good (or better). Highly recommend.
