    Too sweet, apples turned to mush and the topping was rock hard.<br/>No one cared for it

    This smells delicious while baking and tastes really good. I made it gluten free by using a rice flour mix (white rice flour & half the amount of tapioca starch, no gum) I used granny smith apples, dark brown sugar on top of the apples and white sugar in the crust, I reduced both by about half along with the butter like another reviewer. Doing that made the batter unable to be poured, but I spooned it on top and it worked out fine. I chose just to use cinnamon as I felt, though I love cardamom, I wouldn't in this. I would make this again and would like to try with more butter than I did but keep the sugar at about half. Made for Sweet Traditions Tag Game - Spring 2010.

    Another winner brought to us all by Kat! :) Seriously, this is one of the easiest and most delish apple pies Ive ever tried! It has a lovely cakey crust and melt in your mouth apple slices for the filling. YUM! I used only 3 apples, cause that looked like plenty to me and reduced both butter and sugar due to personal preferences. Used only 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter, which worked out perfectly. Served it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and everyone was licking their lips. :) THANK YOU so much for sharing this superb recipe with us, Kat! Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #20 March 2010.

    I love cardamom and when I saw this I knew I had to try it. This is so simple to make and it is such a comforting dessert. I ate more than I should have, but Im not complaining! Deelicious!!


I'm a now vegan who used to make one heck of a souvlaki. I love cooking, I was a huge fan of Moosewood and Molly Katzen prior to going vegan (although that has nothing to do with my choosing the name Katzen - that's just what my German Grandma has called me all my life.) Aside from cooking, I also love scuba diving, cycling, politics, and reading.
