Love love love it!!!! This recipe was awesome. I did use more than 6 apples but I had small ones. I just made sure I had enough to fill the dish. The house smelled so great and it was nice and thick. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the great recipe. I'd never heard of apple cider pie before. Now it's my favorite.
I'm only giving this recipe four stars for two reasons: 1) It did not fill our pan. I had to slice two more apples and place on top of the filling to make our Pyrex pie pan look full. 2) Since the apples need to be simmered, most of the apples (all besides the ones added on top) were too soft. NEXT TIME, because there WILL be a next time, I will just make the sauce as follows: 1 1/3 c. cider 2 tsp. lemon juice 2/3 c. sugar 1 Tbsp. cinnamon 1/8 tsp. nutmeg 1/4 tsp. ground cloves 2 Tbsp. corn starch, mixed with 2 Tbsp. cold water. I will do almost as directed, but reserving the apples. I will place apples in pie pan, and pour sauce over the arranged apples in the crust. I will also use 8 apples instead. The flavor was great! I just like my pie to have more texture than applesauce. I did get rave reviews on this recipe!
I made this last Thanksgiving and it was wonderful. The filling was so lovely, thick and apple-y. If you hate how thin some pies are (and the pies are very thin here in Ireland), then I would recommend this recipe to you. I think it is the best apple pie I have ever had - even though I made it myself! Thanks Velvetinenut.
I made this for xmas dessert. I used apples from our own tree. It came together in no time and the house smelled wonderful as the apples were cooking. Everyone loved it! :)
What a pie! This recipe makes a simply wonderful pie, excellent Velvetinenut, just excellent. It was quick and easy to make, resulting in tender apples and a great sauce. It was very tasty, full of flavour. I used all natural fresh pressed cider and Gala apples, they worked great in this dish. Thanks so much for sharing. This pie was made in honor of CoolMonday.
Apple cider pie is a fav around my house. This is a little different than the recipe I use. I used fresh cider and Mac apples, I was very pleased with the results as was the family:)I made this yummy pie for the Bak-a-thon in honor of CoolMonday
