"This is the best apple pie I have EVER had. This is one of those pies where everything just blends together on the palate beautifully and makes your mouth want more. I was not an apple pie fan until I tasted this! It is better than ANY bakery, restaurant, or grocery store bought (duh) apple pie I've tried. OH - and by the way, it is worth the effort to roll out the dough...Mmm, Mmm! You can use this light, flaky dough with TONS of other fruit pies."

"This pie was delicious. I actually made it twice already. The first time it had WAY too much liquid. I cut down the sugar to 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 of white and it turned out perfect this time. Thanks so much for the great recipe!"
"I do not know what went wrong, as I followed the directions exactly as written. The pie looked beautiful but the filling did not set. There was liquid going up halfway to the top of the pie plate. So disappointed!"
"This pie is excellent! I omitted the 1/2 cup of white sugar as I was using apples that are a sweeter than Granny Smith's. I also upped the amount of cinnamon by about 1/2 tsp and omitted the cloves as that is how I prefer my pie. The crust turns out great! I have never had a lot of success with pie crusts but I did this in the food processor (for the first time ever) and it turned out wonderfully light and flaky. My mother and son both love it as well. From now on this is going to be THE recipe I use for pastry and apple pie."
"This was my first time ever making a pie, on Christmas Eve no less, so needless to say I was scared to death that I'd mess it up! Turned out to be the BEST apple pie I've ever had, and my frinds and family were amazed! Thank you so much!"
"This is the only recipe I use for a great apple pie. The only change I make is adding some lemon zest in the apple mixture."
"Like virtually everyone else who's reviewed this recipe, I have to say that it's absolutely the best apple pie I've ever tasted, let alone made! I made it exactly according to the recipe, save for substituting Instant Clear Jel for the flour...as I do in all my pies. What a spectacular recipe! Thanks so much for posting it!"
"Very yummy!!! Used pre-made dough but the rest was delicious!!!"
"Super Easy and AMAZING!!!"
"I used a store bought crust with this... the filling was terrific though. I did have more than I could fit in the pie pan, I was using the foil pans, and I had 8 apples that were on the small side."
"WOW - this was absolutely delicious and deceptively easy to make as well. Even my husband who doesn't like apple pie had some & still asked for a second helping!! 70 minutes was the perfect cooking time, although the crust did not brown as much as I'd hoped, but I'm sure brushing it with some milk or egg next time will do the trick. We had it staight out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream, which was diving, but it was just as delicious when it had cooled down. This is definitely something I would make again. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!"
"This is a very good recipe! I am not known for my pie crusts!LOL! This was so easy to work with. Wow, Mr. what else have you got up your sleeve? Many thanks for sharing."
"This pie was fantastic! I upped the cinnamon and used cardamom instead of nutmeg. Family wants me to make another pie tonight."
"Made this for a Christmas dinner. Delicious! It was a big hit. Was the first pie I ever baked! I made two so I could have one at home. Thank you."
"This is the best apple pie recipe I have ever used. I have been making the pies for our holiday dinners for the last ten years. I have tried several recipes over the years, and decided to try this one for Thanksgiving. I followed it exactly, but used the pie crust recipe I always use (#82958). This is the best apple pie, my family just loved it. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone looking to impress your guests. Thanks Mr. Mom, this is a definite winner."
"I will make this again,its very good.I cut back to 1 cup of sugar but next time will use 3/4 of a cup.I used spy apples and it was very delicious."
"I made this exactly as the recipe stated. My husband and I both agreed that there was way too much sugar. This was my first attempt at making a pie. Next time I will use less tart apples and not the Granny Smith ones. For me it was too tart and then with the excess sugar ended up being a bit much for us. "
"My daughter cannot handle eggs, milk, soy, or nuts and her birthday was coming up. I found this apple pie recipe, which was free of just about everything (substituted coconut oil for butter). I was nervous at first because I have NEVER made apple pie before but I made this for her bithday party. It was so easy to do and was a smash hit. I am usually not a pie lover but this was amazing! Thanks for this one!"
"Okay, this was off the hook. I added extra cinnamin, vanilla and used a latice crust. Everyone simply adored this! Delicious and a great presentation. The house also smelled sooooo yummy and thanksgiving-esque!"
"great apple pie! the second time i made it, i added 1/2 cup of fresh cranberries which give the pie an interesting sweet and sour taste. i will be using this recipe very often. thanks for sharing mr. mom"
"This truly is a good pie. Apple is one of my favs. My used to make apple pie all the time and this is ranked right up there with hers !!! Thanks Mr.Mom I shared this with people from work and they want the recipe. :) "
