YUM-O! Terrific recipe! I used Granny Smith apples and they blended perfectly with the cinnamon, sugar, etc. Thanks for posting!!
Scrumptious! I didn't have any cardamom so I used ginger instead. Also, I have deep dish pie pans and next time would use 7-8 cups of apples instead of 6. I will definitely be making this again, DH love, love, loved it!
Great tasting pie. My whole family really did enjoy this. The cardamon gave it that extra special touch. Thanks for posting this recipe.
