      A very good pie. Definitly has an old fashioned flavor. The gingersnaps give this a very distinct flavor that melds so nice with the maple syrup. I used Granny Smith apples. Served it to visitors from out of town and thay all said "give it 5 stars". I will make this again. Thanks Lorac, for the recipe.

      Wow, this is one bad a** apple pie! Absolutly to die for, great combination of ingredients for the crumb topping. I cut up 7 Granny Smith apples; probably used about 5-6. I did bake the pie in a deep dish stoneware pie plate by Pampered Chef, my first time using this dish. I followed the ingredients and baking directions exactly, but the crust came out a bit well done; I believe it was because of the stoneware. Thanks Lorac, this is a recipe that will be made over and over!
