This recipe was great after I made a couple adjustments. I added 4 tablespoons of flour to avoid a runny pie.I saw someone say their crust was soggy on the bottom. I brush the bottom of the crust with egg white before adding the filling. I also used 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar. To finish the pie for a picture perfect look, brush the top with the remaining egg white and sprinkle with white sugar. Never a pasty dull looking crust will you ever have again. I always get "oohs and ahhhs". If you're creative, you can cut shapes into the top crust before putting on the top, like hearts. Save the cut out hearts to lay decoratively around the pie, securing in place with egg white as "glue" and brushing the top of them with the egg white as well. If the crust starts to brown too quick, lay a piece of aluminum foil over the top for the remainder of baking. Don't seal it on, just lay over the top of the pie.
OK recipe, after tweeking. This was my first time baking a pie and I wanted to surprise my hubby with his favorite. I followed this recipe to the "T", but I used a store-bought crust. I surpised him alright...with runny filling and under cooked apples! What a sloppy mess! I was disappointed and embarassed because I read every review before choosing this recipe. There is a happy ending though...I put the pie back in the oven for another hour and 15 minutes (covered the crust with foil), and then I put it in the fridge overnight and finally this morning...Aunt Bev's apple pie! Beware.
Loved this recipe. I used granny smith apples and it had a great taste. My bottom crust was soggy, but to avoid this you can dust the bottom crust with flour before putting in the filling. Will make again.
This recipe is *perfect*. Toward the end, I brush the top crust with melted butter and add a little cinnamon sugar. Thank you so much for this delicious apple pie recipe...I will never look for another.
A little runny. The next time I made it, I substituted corn starch in place of flour and also cut down on amount of sugar, used 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup.
Yummy!Tart apples are the only ones that should be in a pie. I used granny smiths and the sweetness/tartness was perfect. Mine was a little runny and was the last time I made this also. Next time I'll add a bit more flour. Flavor is excellent though. Use the baker's secret pie crust from this site.
what a great apple pie! it was very easy to make, and turned out beautifully! I used the easy flaky pie crust recipe for the crust. I'll make this my new apple pie recipe.
This apple pie always gets rave reviews - I love to try new recipies on your website and this recipe is one I keep coming back to! You can always switch it up a little by adding more cinnamon, and sometimes depending on what type of apples I am using - I cut back on the sugar.
