This was my first homemade apple pie. Your recipe is so easy and onolicious. Finally feels like Fall on Maui. Tomorrow is Halloween. We will be enjoying this scrumptious apple pie with some French vanilla ice cream. Mahalo for the recipe.
Dear Kittencal: this is the BEST apple pie I have ever eaten. You post the BEST recipes - will you please adopt me? I also used a new crust recipe that compliments the spices in your recipe. The flavors are the best. Only change I made in the recipe was the apples, I used a combination of Honey Crisp, Jonagold, Golden Delicious and one other variety. I think it was a combination of tart, sweet, soft and firm. All I can say is FANTASTIC!!!
Oh YUM! Use the full 10 cups, not just 8 or your pie will fall a little more - I have made it twice and got lazy the second time and it wasn't as impressive with 8 cups. LOL! DEFINITELY cover with foil, maybe for even up to half an hour so as not to burn the top. For the topping, i just blended it all in a bowl w/a pastry blender and had no trouble with it whatsoever. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Thanks KittenCal!
very good pie! I used a simple shortening crust recipe and baked it for 10 min then let it cool a little before filling. One thing to keep in mind- don't pack down the topping too much, I did and the topping was almost too hard. I think If you gentley pat it on- enough that it doesn't fall off too much- it'd be better. Over all a very nice pie and impressive to guests because it's such a big mound of apple yummy-ness!!!
