"This is the apple pie I've been making for years and if using Pillsbury pie crusts (ready-made pie dough in the dairy section) is the perfect pie-making project for kids. Recipe adapted from an old church cookbook."

"This recipe was really easy and very delicious! I've never made a pie before, and it came out perfect. Thanks for sharing!"
"Great apple pie recipe. I really like the lower, longer baking time. Less watching and it came out fine. I used Granny Smith's and the Pillsbury crust. With tart apples the sugar was the right amount. Taste your apples - if they are sweet, reduce the sugar a bit - this is a good rule for any apple pie recipe. The only thing I did differently was to mix all the filling up in a bowl and then put it in the crust - instead of layering. It is so good, we are having apple pie for breakfast."
"Delicious!! I make my own crust though which is an easy recipe. 1 cup flour, 2 to 3 tbsp cold water and 1/3 cup butter or margarine :)"
"I made this for Thanksgiving. The pie was really easy to make and tasted great! I skipped the lemon juice since my Granny Smith apples where very tart and made it with 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. Received rave reviews from everyone who tried it and the pie was gone in a matter of minutes. My picky 11-year old is begging me to make it again soon, so I think I'll suprise him with this today after dinner . Thank you for sharing this recipe. Definitelly a keeper!"
"The best apple pie I have ever made! I chose to only add 1/2 cup of sugar and bake for 80 minutes, checking every 5 minutes after 1 hour and I also coved the pie with foil around the edges for 35 minutes. I have already been asked to make this recipe for christmas because they siad this was my best apple pie I have made."
"Very good, I did decrease the sugar to 3/4 c. as others recommended, instead of topping the crust w/reg. sugar I generously topped it w/demerara sugar for a little 'crunch' Thanks ellie_-"
"would have been perfect except a little too much sugar! I think only half as much is needed. Also it took 1 hour 15 to be done. Still really easy and tasty."
"This makes a delicious pie! I made it using McIntosh apples, so I only used 3/4 cup sugar and sprinkled 2 Tbsp flour on top to counteract their moistness. I also used a full tsp of cinnamon, because I love cinnamon! It turned out terrific! I took it to a family gathering, and everyone raved about it. I'll be making this again and again!"
"Yum! This turned out really nice and everyone enjoyed! Thanks so much ellie!"
"Very easy to make and tastes delicious. I used a full teaspoon of cinnamon instead of a pinch. Served this warm with vanilla ice cream and my family devoured it. Thank you for sharing!"
"This is a wonderful apple pie recipe! The only changes I made were to increase the cinnamon to 3/4 tsp, decrease the sugar to 3/4 cup (my apples were sweeter) and added a pinch of salt. I didn't even bother to completely peel the apples and it turned out great! Thanks for posting (:"
"The best apple pie ever. It was a hit with the family and disappeared quickly."
"Made this for our son's 17th birthday. Easy and delicious! Followed the directions and ingredients exactly."
"What a great pie recipe ellie. We really enjoyed this tasty pie.
I used a mixture of russet, granny smith and crispini apples, they blended beautifully together, creating a unique flavor. Went with the ready-made crust option and did add more of the spices (personal preference only). Thank you so much for sharing this memorable pie recipe, which we will certainly enjoy again."
"I made this pie for Thanksgiving but I did not taste it because I was way too full to eat another morsel. I was a little disappointed because even after cooled, the filling was runny and I followed the direction exactly. Perhaps my apples were too juicy. Thank you."
"This was the most simple recipe to make! My 2yr old daughter helped and had a blast. There was not a slice left after dinner!"
"This was my first attempt at a from scratch apple pie. It turned out amazing!! I used more of a generous shake of cinnamon/nutmeg than a pinch. :) I, also, used the pie crust recipe that is in another review. It was perfect. 1c. flour, 1/3c. salted butter, 3 tbsp. water. I did double that so I could have a top crust. Oh and I did use all Granny Smith apples. So YUMMY!"
"Loved this! Had Courtlands that needed using --which are more of an eating than baking apple so I used only 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Covered with foil last 10 minutes, then turned off oven and left pie in oven for an hour while dh and I took our walk. Was perfect. Thanks Ellie for sharing."
"Easy peasy. Great taste.
I'd use sweet apples instead of granny smiths next time."
"Made this at Thanksgiving and it was great...I don't even LIKE apple pies!! Thanks for posting!"
