I made this apple pie for Christmas last year and had to search for it to make again this year because it was so good! I love the hearty crumb topping.. it's delicious.

This is a great recipe. Easy to make and tastes great. I added one red delicious apple to the mix. I had lots of apples left over so I put phyllo dough in a muffin pan and filled that with the apples and topped it with the left over crumb. Those were yummy too!

This is exactly the apple pie that I've always had a taste for, but couldn't find a recipe! Everything about this pie is wonderful. The topping is superior! Such a nice crunch with the warm apples, and ice cream just puts this dish over the edge. The apple pie filling is just perfect (I added a little cinnamon too to the filling!) If you want a dessert to impress guests, this would be my pick! It's just that PERFECT comfort food!

I will definitely agree that this is the best apple pie that I've ever tasted!!!! I wanted a heartier topping than just the normal flour, butter and sugar. This was perfect!! I used gala apples since that is what I had. I think that gave it a bit of tartness, which I love in a pie. I did add about 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the sugar/nutmeg/cornstarch mixture--preference...I also used 2 T bottled lemon juice and no zest. For the topping I used less brown sugar (1/2 c instead of 2/3 c)and had about 1/3 cup left over that just wouldn't fit. I was in a hurry and didn't read the instructions on how to bake it, just popped it in the oven at 350 F for about an hour. For the last half hour I did cover it with tented foil to keep it from getting too brown. And then we ate it piping hot from the oven with ice cream! Awesome! This will definitely be "my" apple pie from now on! :) I'm glad to be done with my search for the perfect recipe! Thanks...

This turned out beautifully! I used golden and red delicious that I just picked at the orchard and the pie tasted fantastic. The crumb topping is very thick, a little crunchy and a LOT delicious! I don't like to use my food processor, so I just mixed the topping with my pastry cutter and it worked just fine. Thanks for another great recipe.

I thought, 'best apple pie ever", that sounds extreme. Apple pie is easy and is hard to make it be bad. But, I had a bunch of golden delicious so I made it. Let me tell you this is GREAT. The topping creates an almost crust. I didn't realize I had no lemon until too late and used orange, still GREAT. REally, you must try this one. It's a keeper for me. May be come the only one I make but that's a pretty tall order!

I have made many apple pies and tried different apples and different recipes, and this was by far our FAVORITE!! The lemon flavor really complimented the golden delicious apples, it was fresh and light tasting. Just perfect. We used fresh picked from the farm apples and a regular store bought crust. I've already had someone ask me for a recipe:)

I also used Granny Smith apples for this pie because that is the apple I prefer to bake with. Wow - what a delicious pie; fabulous topping! This is a keeper recipe!!!

I used granny smith apples, added cinnamon to the apples, did not use zest and my husband said it was great (I'm not a pie person). After an hour, it is perfect temp for the ice cream. Next time, I will add some chopped nuts to the topping.
