This is the most AMAZING apple pie recipe in the world! I've made it for three different groups of people so far, and it was gone in hours. I decided to use part Fuji apples (sweet) and part Granny smith apples (tart). The combination was perfect!

I bake quite a lot to share with my coworkers, we are some serious snackers. I always receive glowing reviews of my Tiramisu. My Baklava is another hit, especially made with honey from a coworker%u2019s hives. Even my addictive oatmeal peanut butter cookies vanish.

But this pie, OMG! You%u2019d think all that other stuff was awful compared to this pie. So far I%u2019ve made four of them in the last three weeks (Its apples season). Talk about people dropping everything the moment word spreads I%u2019ve brought pie. I%u2019ve been offered money to bake them for Christmas dinners. In case I wasn%u2019t clear, this pie is awesome!

Talk about easy, have no fear of being able to get great results, with very little effort.

Usually I like to make my own pastry and crusts but I was in a hurry the first time and just used a pillsbury refrigerated pie crust. They come two to a box and with eight apples you%u2019re all set to make two complete pies. People went so crazy over this with the store bought crust why make it more complicated and mess with perfection.

I mostly use Rome apples which hold up well, and the flavor develops when baked. The first time I made the exact recipe. While everyone went crazy I felt it was a little sweet for my taste, and in the subsequent pies I cut the granulated sugar for ? to ? cup in the pie and left the topping as is. I was happy with the result and everyone else agreed it was better with the sugar reduction, which lets more of the %u201Capple%u201D come through. If you like your pie sweeter or are using a tarter apple, like Granny Smith, more sugar might be appropriate.

I usually drop a crust shield on about 20 minutes in. Great recipe, thanks!!

This pie had an oustanding flavor but the filling was a bit too sweet for my taste. I baked it again and reduced the sugar in the filling to 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar and it was just the right sweetness for me. Delish!!!!

This is one of the best Dutch apple pie recipe`s I`ve ever came across. I`ve been making pies all my life. It was always the best thing I could make as a kid for my Dad. He was a hard working man that was holding down two jobs to make ends meet in the family. Until he died, he would always say that I made the best apple pies. Well I will stand aside for this recipe. It`s that good. Thank you Joy.

Delicious!! I ended up using about 7 cups of apples in a deep dish pie pan. I kept all other measurements the same and it still came out fabulous! I served it warm, with vanilla ice cream. (My boyfriend doesn't think pie should exist without ice cream!) I sprinkled extra cinnamon on top of the pie before baking, but I love cinnamon! Thank you for such an easy, tasty recipe!

Hands down the best apple pie I've eaten or made!! My family went wild for it and my 3 year old finished a huge piece-which never happens. I used a butter crust for the first time and we loved it. Tastes like a cross between pie crust and a butter cookie. The pie flavors were perfect-not too sweet-not too plain. Perfect. Thanks so much!

Absolutely perfect! I used all sugar substitutes instead of regular sugars with no change to the flavor or browning. Now I need to hide what is left from myself so I don't dive in before the guys come home! Thank you for this wonderful recipe.
