This Pie was delicious, though the apples were left a little crunchy for my liking. I was especially happy with the crust. I used Spectrum Organic Shortening instead of Crisco, and it still turned out perfect, tender and flakey, but needed a TBSP or two extra water. I would definitely recommend this recipe if you are looking for an easy apple pie that does not run and you can pull out of pie pan in picture perfect slices!
I made this pie exactly as the recipe using Granny Smith apples, it is delicious! The spices in the pie crust pushed it over the top without being too powerful . It will be my go- to apple pie recipe from now on.
My fourteen year old grandaughter said it was the best she ever tasted. We call her miss fussy.
This is the the BEST APPLE PIE I EVER MADE OMG. I only had 10 GALA APPLES in Refrig. and used those to make this pie. I will never use any other recipe again. I did add a tsp. of vanilla . I had the premade pie crust and used that. This pie is a must to make as the filling is AWESOME.TKS FOR THIS RECIPE.
Best. Apple. Pie. Recipe. Ever. (And yes, the whipping cream is a must, NOT an "option")
I have been making this recipe for years. It really is the best!
this is a good recipe
The pie filling is so delicious!!! I will definitely make this for company next time. I used Granny Smith apples, and the apples came out tender, and the filling was firm, not runny. Very good!
I did not have the time to make the crust so I used the pillsbury pie crust, but I used the filling recipe here, only I did not have any nutmeg but it still turned out delicious!!!! The first homemade apple pie I have made that when I cut into it it was not all soupy.This is the best recipe I have ever tried!!!Thanks Land o Lakes!!
I have used this recipe for about 2-3 years now, and you cannot make me try another apple pie recipe! My husband has had me make this pie for his coworkers because it is SOOOO good! If you notice, the ingredients are simple, but the flavor is perfect! Look no further!
ve finally found the perfect apple pie. Look no further if you are still looking for one. The crust is I haso tender and just the right amount of a hint of cinnamon. I used Empire apples. I made the crust in my food processor ( did not need to use as much water as the recipe suggested by doing it this way) and cut the apples using one of those appliances that peel, core and slice the apples. I had this pie ready to place in the oven within 30 minutes. Thank you Land O Lakes for a great recipe.
My mom is usually the one who makes pies in our family. However, when I was craving a warm slice of apple pie, I had to search high and low for a good recipe. I stumbled upon this recipe and let me tell you, it's not good, it's perfect! I made two small dishes instead of one large one, so I could share. I took it to my parent's house and everyone loved it, even my mom! It's a definite keeper.(I did not use the whipping cream, but I will have to try it next time due to all the rave reviews)
IT'S THE BROWN SUGAR THAT MAKES THIS PIE SOOOOOO GOOD.MY MOM MADE THIS RECIPE OVER 75 YEARS AGO.
This is THE standard pie recipe in our house. Have not used any other recipe for over 15 years when I bought the Land O Lakes cookbook that it was in. We do make one small change, using Fuji apples and only using brown sugar. The Fuji's are sweeter than Granny Smiths and do not need the extra processed sugar. The Whipping cream is MANDATORY, not optional :)
I have made this pie for a long time now. We all love it even if it isnt Xmas!
Delicious recipe! It was my first time making pie crust from scratch and it was easy and tasty. I would definitely recommend this recipe to others.
Excellent, I have shared this recipe with several. I would suggest a cookie sheet under the pie when baking. I made leaves from the left over dough and placed on top of the pie for baking.
Excellent pie...and everyone at our Thanksgiving table had rave reviews. This one is a keeper!
i loved the recipe, but i would use less nutmeg. my pie looked just like your picture.... presentation is important!
I always put some type of drip pan under the pies I make. Sometimes the juice spills over the sides and a pan is easier to clean the the oven. Also, I like to use the middle shelf to set the pies on to bake.
OMG...Best pie I ever made! Very easy, perfect in everyway. A definite Plus "A LA MODE" too. Great for any occasion and no mess in the kitchen after you've finished. Guaranteed no leftovers.
It's amazing how good this recipe is without sugar. Since I have a diabetic at home I like to try different recipes without using sugar and find the spices make up the difference in taste in this recipe. Many, many thanks
I have been making a pretty good apple pie for over 45 years but just never could find the perfect one until today. I wanted a filling that was not runny and this one sure was the WINNER. No wonder they called it the Blue Ribbon Apple Pie. The crust was excellent and very easy to make. For the new bakers I would place the dough on Plastic wrap, press the dough down, cover with another sheet and roll out to the 12". Then just tear over the top piece, flip the crust onto your pie plate, fill, and roll up the top crust the very same way. What a picture. Thank you.
Highly recommend this recipe. Easy and simple ingredients, always get complimented on it. make it even easier: buy pillsbury refrigerated crust:
My class used this recipe and had great results. The crust is easy for students to work with and provided a pie for them to take home and share with parents. Good results all around.
this pie was easy to make and the crust was great. this will be one for the line up after the turkey on thanksgiving.
this is my favorite recipe. i been doing this apple pie for the holidays. everyone who's tried it, can't wait until i bake it.
I have been making the Blue Ribbon Pie for years and it continues to be the best Pie served at the holidays. You don't have to make the crust, I always do, more effort but what a difference. I have also found if you don't have an apple peeler, a Presto tater twister hiding in most of our cupboards slices the perfect sized apple for pie.
we love this apple pie. when i first got this recipe it said to pour 1/4 cup of heavey cream thru the slits with 10 min left and than finsh baking. My husband will not let me bake it without the cream
I used a store bought pie crust (Walmart brand) because I have never made a pie before. The recipe was extremely easy and it did not take very long to make. The end result was excellent. This pie was very good and my family raved about it in between bites. My husband still talked about it the following morning. This recipe is a keeper.
This is one of the best apple pie recipes I have every tried! Everyone that has tasted it has raved over it and wants the recipe, and I have a hard time giving it to them. I want to keep it as a family secret and pass it down to my kids! But I end up giving it to them very relunctly, seeing they are family. I only make this apple pie recipe no others. Everyone loves it!
This pie was really easy and tasted great.
My family loved it so much, that I've made it several times. If your pressed for time you can always buy the premade roll out crust.
This apple pie was excellent!

It was a beautiful day and Dad offered to take over dinner. He found a manly recipe for Mustard & Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops and made a plan.
Freshly sliced from the deli, Land O Lakes® 4 Cheese Italian Blend combines the rich flavors of Asiago, Romano and Parmesan with creamy American to bring the authentic taste of Italy to your American fare.
After you make the hamburger patties and light the grill, what do you get out of the fridge?
Probably ketchup, mustard and relish. Maybe mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Those are the classics, and I love them, too.
But, sometimes I like to look at the burger and bun as just a starting point for some fun, creative cooking. More ...
