This pie was delicious. I actually made it twice already. The first time it had WAY too much liquid. I cut down the sugar to 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 of white and it turned out perfect this time. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

I do not know what went wrong, as I followed the directions exactly as written. The pie looked beautiful but the filling did not set. There was liquid going up halfway to the top of the pie plate. So disappointed!

This pie is excellent! I omitted the 1/2 cup of white sugar as I was using apples that are a sweeter than Granny Smith's. I also upped the amount of cinnamon by about 1/2 tsp and omitted the cloves as that is how I prefer my pie. The crust turns out great! I have never had a lot of success with pie crusts but I did this in the food processor (for the first time ever) and it turned out wonderfully light and flaky. My mother and son both love it as well. From now on this is going to be THE recipe I use for pastry and apple pie.

This was my first time ever making a pie, on Christmas Eve no less, so needless to say I was scared to death that I'd mess it up! Turned out to be the BEST apple pie I've ever had, and my frinds and family were amazed! Thank you so much!

This is the only recipe I use for a great apple pie. The only change I make is adding some lemon zest in the apple mixture.

Like virtually everyone else who's reviewed this recipe, I have to say that it's absolutely the best apple pie I've ever tasted, let alone made! I made it exactly according to the recipe, save for substituting Instant Clear Jel for the flour...as I do in all my pies. What a spectacular recipe! Thanks so much for posting it!

I used a store bought crust with this... the filling was terrific though. I did have more than I could fit in the pie pan, I was using the foil pans, and I had 8 apples that were on the small side.

WOW - this was absolutely delicious and deceptively easy to make as well. Even my husband who doesn't like apple pie had some & still asked for a second helping!! 70 minutes was the perfect cooking time, although the crust did not brown as much as I'd hoped, but I'm sure brushing it with some milk or egg next time will do the trick. We had it staight out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream, which was diving, but it was just as delicious when it had cooled down. This is definitely something I would make again. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
