Haven't made it yet.........but will soon it sounds wonderful


I've been making this pie for more than 15 yrs, and I always got so much complement. I tend to reduce the amount of brown sugar and use the Granny smith. People love to taste the actual apples.


Was the best apple pie I have made. I used Granny Smith and Idared apples for my filling. I fudged up the crust recipe and ran out of dough near the end, but made it work. ! Taking the rest of my pie to work to see what the people there think.


An absolutely wonderful pie. As can be imagined, the flavors meld together perfectly. It was a hit with all of my company.
