Serving Size: 1 (169 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This is the most AMAZING apple pie recipe in the world! I've made it for three different groups of people so far, and it was gone in hours. I decided to use part Fuji apples (sweet) and part Granny smith apples (tart). The combination was perfect!"
"WOW!!!! I used honey crisp apples (my personal favorite) and it was DELISH!!"
"Made this for our Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. Used granny smith apples and followed the recipe to T. Will definitely make again and again."
"What a fantastic recipe! I have followed this recipe several times and I just love it. Since I am a huge fan of cinnamon I added some to the topping as well, and used "sugar in the raw" for some more texture. Absolutely fabulous!"
"I bake quite a lot to share with my coworkers, we are some serious snackers. I always receive glowing reviews of my Tiramisu. My Baklava is another hit, especially made with honey from a coworker%u2019s hives. Even my addictive oatmeal peanut butter cookies vanish.
But this pie, OMG! You%u2019d think all that other stuff was awful compared to this pie. So far I%u2019ve made four of them in the last three weeks (Its apples season). Talk about people dropping everything the moment word spreads I%u2019ve brought pie. I%u2019ve been offered money to bake them for Christmas dinners. In case I wasn%u2019t clear, this pie is awesome!
Talk about easy, have no fear of being able to get great results, with very little effort.
Usually I like to make my own pastry and crusts but I was in a hurry the first time and just used a pillsbury refrigerated pie crust. They come two to a box and with eight apples you%u2019re all set to make two complete pies. People went so crazy over this with the store bought crust why make it more complicated and mess with perfection.
I mostly use Rome apples which hold up well, and the flavor develops when baked. The first time I made the exact recipe. While everyone went crazy I felt it was a little sweet for my taste, and in the subsequent pies I cut the granulated sugar for ? to ? cup in the pie and left the topping as is. I was happy with the result and everyone else agreed it was better with the sugar reduction, which lets more of the %u201Capple%u201D come through. If you like your pie sweeter or are using a tarter apple, like Granny Smith, more sugar might be appropriate.
I usually drop a crust shield on about 20 minutes in. Great recipe, thanks!!"
"This was very good - I think the brown sugar made all the difference. Thanks for a great recipe."
"This is an excellent pie, just as it is. Thanks for putting it out there in cyberworld for all of us to enjoy!"
"This recipe is awesome. Perfect amount of sugar for tart granny smith apples. The family loved it. I will be making this again...SOON!"
"Delicious!! I ended up using about 7 cups of apples in a deep dish pie pan. I kept all other measurements the same and it still came out fabulous! I served it warm, with vanilla ice cream. (My boyfriend doesn't think pie should exist without ice cream!) I sprinkled extra cinnamon on top of the pie before baking, but I love cinnamon! Thank you for such an easy, tasty recipe!"
"So good! This pie set up perfectly. I cut back on the sugar as others suggested. We ate it warm out of the oven with vanilla ice cream. Family loved it!"
"Hands down the best apple pie I've eaten or made!! My family went wild for it and my 3 year old finished a huge piece-which never happens. I used a butter crust for the first time and we loved it. Tastes like a cross between pie crust and a butter cookie. The pie flavors were perfect-not too sweet-not too plain. Perfect. Thanks so much!"
"This pie had an oustanding flavor but the filling was a bit too sweet for my taste. I baked it again and reduced the sugar in the filling to 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar and it was just the right sweetness for me. Delish!!!!"
"Absolutely Amazing!! I hate baking...but had so many granny Smith apples to put to good use.. This pie (it made two) was the best apple pie my family had ever had! And....I made it!! Woooo Hoooooo!!!"
"The ONLY Dutch Apple Pie recipe I will ever make from now on. Omit the pie crust and it becomes the best ever Apple Crisp. This amazingly wonderful pie also freezes well, uncooked, so when I make it, I usually make two -- one to pop in the oven and one wrapped in a double layer of plastic wrap to enjoy another day when I'm short on time."
"my rating is with a huge reduction in the amount of sugar (cut down by half). I added a few walnuts in the crumble topping and that got great reviews as well. i had to bake mine for quite longer than the recipe called for, VERY simple recipe for a VERY delicious pie! I've already make this many times and will make it many more, I'm sure! Gets stellar reviews every time! Thanks!"
"BEST APPLE PIE EVER!!!!!!!!!!! I made the pie exactly as recipe called for and it wasn't too sweet, nor too tart. Note: it worked very well with Granny Smith apples. Make THIS pie, you will not regret it!!!"
"This was my first time making a pie. It was the best pie I have ever eaten. We ate it for breakfast it was so good. I will be making this for our Easter dessert."
"Absolutely perfect! I used all sugar substitutes instead of regular sugars with no change to the flavor or browning. Now I need to hide what is left from myself so I don't dive in before the guys come home! Thank you for this wonderful recipe."
"this pie is the bomb...I used 8 cups of apples (cortland and granny smith) and added nuts(walnuts and macademia) to crumb topping..Most requested pie I have every made"
"Used this as my very first homemade apple pie recipe. Amazing and simple. I had no lemon juice so I subbed the same amount of white vinegar and it made no difference in taste or presentation. Thank you for sharing, I have an apple pie recipe now."
