Reviews for No-Bake Apple Pie
"I might be the only one; but am always wondering why folks do not "measure" apples, bananas, etc. instead of giving a number/size count! Can anyone help me out with this? After lots of "practice" I have sort of got mashed bananas down -- 2-3 medium ripe is /- a cup; but some days that's not good either! So, I guess I will "play" with this one too! Sorry, if I appear to be ranting..."
"can i use can pie filling instead?"
"We are not watching our sugar so I use the regular jello & pudding mix. It's great. I've made it twice now, we love it."
"We cut back on the nutmeg (not my favorite) and increased the pudding to 2 packages. Was delicious and will be permanent in our recipe file."
"Although I live in Alberta, I often shop in Montana. Can "oreotookie" or someone else tell me which grocery store carries the sugar-free pudding? I can't find it around here.Joanne in Alberta"
"I substituted fresh peaches for the apples, and it was yummy. I LOVE this recipe."
"I too had a hard time finding the pudding, but if you find the Jello brand "Cook & Serve" pudding, it is .8 oz. I had to go to a couple of stores to find the "Sugar-Free" variety. I found the regular "Cook & Serve", but not the sugar-free.Do NOT use instant pudding. I did, and it turned out okay in the end, but it was very, very clumpy."
"where do I find a 0.8 oz of vanilla pudding? Most boxes are 3 oz or 4.6 oz."
