I really liked this pie! My first attempt was less than great, but some was my own fault. I forgot the vanilla, but the amount of apples also seemed far too many for the size of the pie pan. I had apples and sauce overflowing! Even so, it tasted OK and was easy to do, so I tried it again. My second effort I limited it to 2 cups of apples, mixed granny smith and golden delicious. I made certain to include the vanilla, and also added a bit of cinnamon to the apples. In addition, bc I have a real sweet tooth, I added an additional 1/2 c brown sugar to the topping portion. This adjustment turned out GREAT! I made one for myself and took one to a church dinner. Thanks. I plan to make another for Christmas dinner.

This is a quick and easy recipe! I added brown sugar and cinnamon and salt to the apple mixture. It turned out really good. I have noticed on alot of recipes I find on line, there is always something missing.

Hubby was craving apple pie and I ran across this in my August/September Simple & Delicious mag. Looked easy and with few ingredients. The only thing we needed was the apples. Got some Granny Smiths and followed the recipe except for adding some cinnamon to the apple mixture. I couldn't figure out why that was left out of the original recipe. Anyway, it came out TERRIFIC! Oh so tasty and the crust is wonderful. Perfect recipe! I've already printed and saved it and it is now my go-to recipe. Hubby absolutely LOVED it and he's picky about his apple pie. LOL! Thanks Brenda DuFrense for sending it in.

This was so easy - love the preparation technique for the crust and topping! I thought it needed some spice so next time I made it I added in 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon to the flour mixture. I also added 1/2 cup chopped nuts (typically peans or walnuts), and I thought this provided some nice crunch. I will definitely make this pie again!

This pie was easy to prepare. The no roll crust and topping is delicious. As I was making this pie, I noticed it did not call for any cinnamon. After reading several other reviews, I decided to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to the filling. I would also reserve more like 1 1/2 cups of the crust mixture for the topping.

I would have given this 5 stars, however, it definitely lacks cinnamon and nutmeg! I should have read the reviews before I made it. I think with those additions, this would be a 10 star pie! LOVE the crust! I love that it adds more texture and flavor vs a standard crust. I might even add some finely chopped walnuts or pecans to the streusel topping!

made exactly as set out in recipe except added one teaspoon of cinnamon to filling. prep was easy and straight forward. enjoyed the pie filling but did not like the crust. the taste of butter was overwhelming. in the future I may prepare standard scratch pie crust with this filling.
