My favorite apple pie
May 14, 2015
Very tasty apple pie and very easy! This was one of the pies I made for Pie (Pi) Day, March 15, this year and everyone enjoyed it. I doubled the amount of cinnamon in the recipe, but that was the only change I made.

My Dad's favorite pie!

Very easy and love the "sandie" topping. I used my homemade apple pie filling. Would probably be good on peach too.

My family made this recipe together several months ago when we started baking something new every other weekend or so. It was easy to make and it tasted great. Crushing the pecan sandies was everyone's favorite part besides eating it. I would make it again, maybe around Thanksgiving.

I made this because I realized Thanksgiving morning that I didn't calculate my pie crusts properly, and I was left with only one crust for my apple pie. I've never made apple pie without a top crust, but I must admit I think I like it better with the crumb topping! I used my own pie filling, because I don't care for the canned stuff, but other than that it was superb!

Put this one in your favorite recipes file, everybody! It is literally "easy as pie" but tastes like something much more expensive and time-consuming. The only change I would make is to keep the foil on the crust longer - mine was a little overbrowned. Oh, and I didn't chill it but served it at room temp with vanilla ice cream. It's recipes like this one which makes TOH's Simple and Delicious magazine worth getting.

This one is a real keeper. My father-in-lawalways asks for it. So simple and so delicious.

This is another quick and very tasty dessert that works well when we are on the road in our motorhome. But I serve it at home too!
