Reviews for Apple Pie
"This is the perfect apple pie! I used my own pie crust recipe though because it is tried and true. Two tips abou the pie filling. 1). I used a combination of Jonagold and Granny Smith apples but increased the amount of apple to 9 cups. This was just right for the stated amount of sugar, flour, and seasoning. Juicy but not runny. 2). Baking time needs to be increased substantially. I started with the stated time but the pie was not nearly done. Baked another 30 minutes, checking frequently to be sure it was not over baking. Apples should be nice and "oozy" and very tender. With these two minor modifications, fabulous results!"
"Overall, I like the recipe, Like others, I think either a little extra flower or some cornstarch would be good to help soak up some of the juices. That might vary based on the top of apple.My crust turned out great! But even with 5 extra minutes, my apples still weren't tender enough. I used Honeycrisp and a few golden delicious. I wish now that I'd either tried another reviewer's tip of covering the whole top with tin foil (so I could have baked it longer), or perhaps cooking the apples in a sauce pan for 5 minutes to give them a head start. P.S. I probably would have chosen Jonathans or Jonagolds if my store had them. :-/"
"I'm not a usually a fan of pie but a lot of people in my family like it so I decided to make it. I listened to the other reviewers and added an extra 1/2 tbsp of flour. And I added a little extra cinnamon because who doesn't like extra cinnamon? Anyway the pie came out perfect. It had fantastic flavor and wasn't very runny."
"Apple pie is my husband's favourite, but I rarely make it. Yesterday I picked up a 2 pack Tenderflake crust, and made this for him. It went over well. I did omit the ginger (preference), but next time I'd reduce the nutmeg a bit too.I found it a bit too sweet, but that may have been because I used Gala apples and they were quite sweet. I'd like to try it with Granny Smith next time."
"We just moved into a house we bought and it had apple trees, don't know what kind they were but the sauce did not thicken up . My crust was good does it matter what kind of apples i used? I cooked it longer then what it said . any suggestions for next time?"
"The best apple pie I have ever tasted. My homemade crust was pretty good also."
"Fantastic pie. I use 1 tab. cornstarch w/ 2 tab. flour. I don 't like nutmeg so I use ALL cinnamon."
"Very good, just a bit too much nutmeg though since we don't really like it. I'll try cloves instead next time."
"This is my go to apple pie recipe. So easy and so delicious. Love it!"
