  1. This is the apple pie my mother has made for me all my life. We always use a paper bag it makes the house smell instantly of baking apples as soon as the oven door is closed. Love this recipe.
  2. Based on all the great reviews I feel bad giving it 2 stars. But when I made it just as described but the butter in the top "crust" laid on the top of the baked pie like pizza grease! Gross. The bottom crust was soggy as well. I let it then sit in the oven - Read more ...
  3. What a wonderful recipe! I was in such a hurry and this was so fast. My only change to the recipe was to double up on the cinnamon and nutmeg and I probably used more lemon juice too. I could tell right off that I was going to have way more filling than I need - Read more ...
  4. Pie was good. I put it in a brown paper bag in the oven rather than parchment paper.
  5. My husband Loves apples pies. He absolutely loved the flavor of this pie. I am making it again today because he loved the taste. My problem with the pie is that it didn't hold it's shape very well when cut and the crust was soggy on bottom. Was the pie filling too moist? I don't - Read more ...
  6. It's a cool recipe
