Joan, I can certainly see why you constantly use this recipe. It's good! I used Northern Spy apples, Mean Chef's Classic Pie Crust (#26205), and I believe the apple pie I made is the best one I've ever made. Your filling has a nice, fresh taste of apples with just the perfect hint of cinnamon. The directions are straightforward and the recipe is simple to prepare. The filling also didn't taste overly sweet (which, of course, is due in part to the apples, which are a cooking apple and not an eating apple). Thanks for posting this recipe; it's a keeper!

My family loved this pie! I used Honeycrisp apples.

Great Pie-Very easy! I made the crust the night before ( Martha Stewart's) ...and I made the die deep dish so I doubled the apples and everything else. I always decrease the nutmeg and ginger since we dont like the pie too "spicy" .Excellent recipe-this one goes in my will use as a staple list!
Thanks Joan!
