    Dine & Dish's Note:

    I adopted this recipe during the Recipezaar abandoned account recipe adoption. This is a delicious pie with an easy, no fuss crust. The crust is tender and flaky at the same time and the flavor is just the perfect amount of sweetness! Try it and you'll see why it is a Festival winning apple pie! 10/12/04, Edited: cooking time/temperature

      This is a yummy recipe! I added just a dash of flour to the apple mixture, to keep apple juices a little thicker. I also found the cooking temp to be a little too high. My crust was very dark brown after only about 15 minutes. I reduced the temp to about 350 and it cooked nicely.

      This is the best apple pie I have ever made (and I have been baking apple pies for 25 years!). The crust is outstanding, absolutely delicious when made with real butter. Only change I made is that I used golden delicious apples, which I had, instead of the granny smith. Highly recommended.

      I also added a bit of cloves and nutmeg to the apple mixture, just because I like those spices, and it tasted great. I also brushed egg over the top of the crust before I cooked it to give it an old-fashioned dark and shiny look. Tasted very yummy, especially with vanilla ice cream.
