This pie is really easy to make, and is delicous! I used 8 apples, as listed, and ended up having enough for two 9-inch pies. For the first pie, I followed the directions exactly and used a store bought crust. It was good, but when I made the second pie I placed the spices and apples in a large bowl to mix, instead of sprinkling the spices over the top of the apples. It was much better, I thought. I also used the Best Ever Pie Crust recipe and made a lattice top, which turned out quite well.

The idea of pouring dry ingredients on top of apples already in the crust is not a good one. The end taste is too granular. I did not like it at all.

This is a simple and good recipe. I would make one suggestion. Try using half Granny Smith and half Gala apples. I have used this combination for years and all who have tried my apple pies seem to like it better than an all Granny Smith apple pie.

I find using 2 tbsps more sugar and 1/2 tbsp of cinnamon makes it taste like heaven. And also I found that if you wet the apples a bit, and then coat them in the flour mixture before they go in the pie shell, the apples turn out softer.

Wonderful pie. Even my "non apple pie" friends loved it. I did mix my apples with the sugar mixture before I put them in the pie.

I substituted nutmeg in for the cloves. Also I would suggest to do 3 layers of apples and sugar mix, instead of 2 layers. By the second layer I had a lot of mix left to pour on top. Its a great recipe for a basic apple pie!

The pie filling turned out great! I didn't use the cloves and only used about a teaspoon of cinnamon.

I made this pie for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a HUGE hit! The recipe was easy to follow and turned out perfect! I made 1 with a full top crust and 1 with a lattice top. If you make a lattice top, the pie filling tends to dry up a little quicker. I will make this pie over and over again! Thanks for submitting it!
