  1. I made this on a cookie sheet doubled the recipe used 5 mac apples adjusted baking time a little ( thinner pie) It turned out amazing....had to share the recipe...thanks sooooo much for this one!
  2. This is really good - interesting. It tastes more how it looks than sounds but lighter than it looks. I expected it to be denser and richer but its very creamy and fresh-tasting. Like others I could go for a few more apples - I used 3 large and would probably up it to 4. - Read more ...
  3. I love this pie! It was simple fast and delicious. I left out the lemon juice and zest and I added a little bit of heavy cream.

  8. This was a wonderful wonderful pie. My family loved it!!!! I tweaked the recipe just a little bit (even when i resolve not to i still do) I added a bit of cinnimon and vanilla to the apples. Not enough to overpower. It tasted really good with the lemon. And I left the lemon zest - Read more ...
  9. The pie was amazing! I followed the directions almost exactly except that I used ready-made graham cracker pie shell. Thanks for the recipe Karen! I will definitely bake it again.
  10. I made this recipe tonight but I wasn't really in the mood for anything lemony or apricot-y so I fiddled with the ingredients a bit and OMG it turned out sooooo awesome! I used the pre-baked pie shell and made the cream cheese filling but I omitted the lemon rind and added 1 tsp. of - Read more ...
