This makes a great pie and was easy to put together. The whole house smelled wonderful while it was baking. Everyone enjoyed it with vanilla ice cream. For the crust, I used Gourmet Double Pie Crust.

I made this pie with 4 large Granny Smith apples and they filled a 9" skillet. I also used 1/2 cup of each sugar. 2 cups total of sugar seemed way too much for 4 apples. I would suggest you place skillet in a foil/parchment lined pan as juices will run over. It took 1 hour to bake. Someone suggested that I line the skillet with parchment paper to make clean-up easier. I will try that next time I make this pie. This is a messy pie, but so good.

To be sure, this made a very rich and flavorful dessert, but it was more of a cobbler than a pie. Pie crust has always been a challenge for me to make, but now that my inlaws are coming for Thanksgiving this year, I want to have apple pie mastered by the time they get here, which is why I'm starting now. This recipe is a good first step. I love the filling and the buttery brown sugar layer on the bottom, and it goes so well with a scoop of ice cream melting alongside. Thanks for sharing.

My aunt just made this pie, and no one could eat it!!! The brown sugar-butter sauce on the bottom, burned, and permeated the entire pie! It ruined the entire pie...I am gonna try it in my own over, as I suspect it may have
been her over...too hot!

Even though I used a store bought pie crust this turned out good. Love the idea of cooking it with a brown sugar sauce on the bottom. DH said it was too sweet so I may cut down on sugar, but daughter devoured it. A diffent keeper thank you

This was a great easy recipe. The family loved it and fought over the last piece. It even tasted good cold.

Super dessert! I used 4 1/2 big Granny Smith apples & ready made refrigerated pie crusts. It went together easily & quickly. My guests thought I'd worked for hours on this gem. ;-) Thanks!
