This recipe came from my Mom and I have no idea where she got it. I just know this is another recipe that even if someone thinks they don't care for apple pie, they usually love this one. This can be made with or without a crust; I always use the Pillsbury Ready Crust.

  8. Bake in pre-heated oven for 50 to 60 minutes.

That was really good! Probably 8 apples is too many, they did not fit into my baking dish, so I ate one fresh :-) I did it without crust and it tasted great. The only problem is that I made it in a baking dish with removable sides, so the syrup started dripping through the holes and I had to wrap foil around it. Probably it was not the smartest choice of a baking dish for the cake without crust. For serving we liked it with caramel&nut ice cream.

Review My Recipe Game - This was very easy to make. Unfortunately, my oven runs a bit hot and it got a bit burnt :( However, it still tastes pretty good! I used a piece of puff pastry for the crust. Thanks Mary!

What a lovely apple pie Mary. It was quick and easy to make with subtle flavours. I opted for using the crust. We really enjoyed the spice combination, the flavourful filling and the soft texture of the pie. Thanks for sharing.
