This was a great pie. It was nice and juicey. The only thing I didn't like about it was the lemon. It was a little bit to bitter. Thanks for posting!! Sincerly Super Spongebob

I can cook nearly anything but I've NEVER been able to make an apple pie that was juicy. This was my first one that ever turned out and was delicious. My husband had wanted me to buy a frozen one and I decided to try one more time. This is definitely going to be MY pie recipe from now on. Thanks for posting it!

I am always trying to find a better apple pie. This one is a definite plus in my book and company enjoyed it served warm with cinnammon ice cream which I made by softening 1/2 gallon of vanilla and blending in cinnamon to taste. Then refreeze it and serve with pie.

Outstanding recipe - use brown sugar and it's even bettter. I make this and give it to friends and relatives all the time. Soothes even the most profound bout of pathos and despair! Better than prescription drugs, no kidding. Just kidding, but this is really a very good recipe.

I had some "old man" gala apples that needed to be used up and decided to try this recipe. Oh my! My DH said it was the best apple pie he had ever tasted and I agree. It was juicy and the right balance of sweet and tart. My go to recipe now. Thanks for sharing.

To start I should say I've never made a sweet pie before without using store-bought crusts. This recipe is not only easy but also delicious! The crust is super easy to make (used about 3 1/2tbsp of water) and turned out VERY tender and flaky. The only changes I made was to use 1/2c brown sugar and 1/2c white sugar, 1/3c regular shortening and 1/3c butter shortening (not actual butter, you can find this at any grocery store). Other than that I used just 1tbsp of cinnamon and instead of the zest I used about 1tsp of lemon juice. Thanks a mil for this recipe, it's a keeper :).

I knew the cinnamon was going to be over the top, so i reduced it to 1.5 tsp. i also used cloves instead of the nutmeg. and at the suggestion of my son i added a bag of dried cranberries to the apples. this was such a hit that it did not last long. i plan on making it many more times in the future.

This was quick and easy to make. The pastry was flaky and the filling very tasty. If there was one thing I would change it would be that the cinnamon turned the filling brownish instead of golden yellow. I think I'll sprinkle the cinnamon on top next time instead of mixing it in with the apples and see what happens. Thanks for a great recipe.
