"I also used a premade crust. Because it came in a roll, it was easy to cut in half and make two smaller pies, which was more practical for me. I misread the amount of toffee bits, so this was not sweet enough for me - even though my apple was a tart-sweet variety. The one thing that I did not like was that there was a bit too much crust on the edges - that might have been to my admittedly inept technique with pie crust. This is a great idea for a smaller pie for smaller households."
"OK, so I *cheated* a little, as I had a pie crust I needed to use. I'm certainly going to make this again and look forward to making the pastry from scratch, as this will certainly get even better! The toffee bits are very complimentary. It was easy to make, tho, perhaps due to my crust, I only needed 30 minutes, and maybe a couple less next time. I also used turbinado sugar for sprinkling on top. Just wonderful and super easy; great as a last minute dessert for the family. I did serve mine a la mode. Yum! Thanks for sharing, weekend cooker!"
":-)))) That's me and my double (quadruple) chin. These days I'm thinking turtle necks or maybe that should read turkey necks. :-/)))) Pretty darn good and made for A-NZ #45 Recipe Tag."
"What a great way to make just half a pie, especially when using fruit that doesn't end up with a lot of juice! Made this very tasty pie for just 2 of us, giving us a wonderful dessert & a bonus snack later on, but without a whole pie to finish off! My other half particularly enjoyed the inclusion of the toffee pieces! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]"
"Beautiful AND delicious! I like that this is like a half sized pie, perfect for smaller families, like mine. I used two apples, which I sliced thin, as wicked suggested - and I did use all the toffee chips, and I'm glad I did! I suggest putting the apples on less than half of the circle, as you'll need a little more than half when you fold it over. I think I will push the apples a little closer to the edges than I did (well, at least on the ends), because my ends were a little long - this is one recipe that will definately improve as I get better at working with pastry. Thanks, WC, for a great recipe! Made for PRMR Tag."
"The pastry for this is WONDERFUL. I cut it in a 10 inch circle then made a smaller one. Next time I will slice my apples a bit thinner so I can get more apple in. I was having a hard time folding the pasty over and having it tear only because my slices were a bit to thick.I didn't use all the toffee bits but should of so will next time LOL. This was the perfect size to give us apple pie without alot of pie leftover. Served with vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce. PERFECT. This is going in my Divine Cookbook.
