"This is a wonderful twist on the traditional apple pie - great for fall! It calls for Pippin apples, but I usually use a combination of several kinds. Occasionally I add a bit of cinnamon, too!"

2 1/4 pounds
Pippin apples - peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons
pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
One pound of apples equals 2 large, 3 medium, or 4 small apples. You need 4.5 large apples, or 6.75 medium, or 9 small apples for this recipe.
I used Fresh Cranberries and a little more spice. The apples were fresh frozen and I left the peel on, my Father-in-law loved this pie. Try putting a little cinn. in the crust too
This pie was outstanding. I didn't have any brandy (imagine that, I'm from Wisconsin) so I added Kahlua instead. I didn't have allspice so I added cinnamon and nutmeg. I used a combination of Rome and Jonathon apples. I made one with a double crust and another with a crumb topping. Both were delicious. I was afraid the dried cranberries (Craisons) would be too chewy but they were just perfect and a delicious addition.
Yum... this filling was terrific! I've served it at 2 family occasions and it was a huge hit both times. Tasty and not TOO sweet.
I changed the cooking directions so that I cooked the pie at 450F for 10 minutes and then turned it down to 360F for another 50 minutes. Perfect!
I love the different ingredients in this pie. I've made it several times and it always comes out great. I use half the cranberries, though. Just enough to get a little kick!
this pie was wonderful, i added cinimon and a cup of water...it was delicious, perfect for fall with all of the fresh apples.....I will make this again......
Great Pie! Tried it for Thanksgiving and it was a champ. I had extra of the filling though, but hey, good for a new half size pie. My apples, they were crunchy ... I cheated by not cooking the filling long enough, and my family loved it that way. My boyfriend can't resist it specially if I serve it hot with Ice Cream on top of it.
This pie is great. Even the kids loved it. I don't have a working scale so the apples measured by number of apples or number of cups of apples would have made this easier for me. I had to guess on the amount. I used a mixture of Harelson and Cortland. Yummy!! I will be making this pie for the holidays.
