This is a great easy recipe for people on the go, or who have never done an apple pie before. I have to agree with the other folks. Make your pie filling with spices or it will be bland. I didn't cook my filling. I went old school and dumped the raw apples, cornstarch, and everything in a bowl, mixed it together, and it baked up just fine. One tip I think you may find useful is you can also use instant oatmeal packets. Just cut back on the brown sugar for the topping (I used 1/2 cup packed brown sugar). Also, I doubled the recipe for the crust and the topping using 2 packets of Apple Cinnamon oatmeal for each, for a deep dish pie. I just found that saving a cup wasn't enough for the topping, but boy was it delicious! I used a combination of 3 each Jonathan and granny smith apples and it turned out mighty tasty. Great starter recipe to build on or to make on the fly.
As a pie lover, it is difficult for a pie to really impress me. This recipe not only impressed me, it changed me. I added a little cinnamon and nutmeg to the glaze as other reviewers suggested. Other than that, everything was perfect. The glaze was just the right amount to perfectly coat the apples with no excess remaining.
Very tasty and good. It didn't last long at my table
Definitely would add cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice to jazz it up. Tastes a lot like a apple pie crumble.
This recipe is wonderful! I used the crust and topping part of the recipe with the apple pie filling I had frozen (http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/apple-pie-filling) and the two recipes complimented each other perfectly! I will definitely make it again and am also anxious to try the whole recipe when our apple tree bears again this fall.
