This recipe turned out very well. I made a delicious bottom and top crust. The only thing missing was the fluted edge. The filling was a little bland for my taste so I added more cinnamon and nutmeg. The filling seemed a little dry but not too dry. I did let the pie set on the table for about 20 minutes before putting it into the oven as other "makes its own crust" recipes direct. I may try adding more liquid next time but that may also make the top crust disappear.

This was one of the worst recipes I have ever tried. I do not recommed it. No "crust" was formed, the flavor can best be described as bland and it looked disgusting! Nothing about this recipe is good. I would suggest you not waste your time on this recipe.

I like that you didnt have to make or buy a crust with this one. the first time I made it i followed it word for word, the 2nd time I changed it,I also doubled it. Well most of it, I only put 1.5 cups of flour and after I mixed butter/sugar/eggs, I added the flour AND the apples and mixed it around. Also used 1 cup of butter instead. Worked out better and had more of a crust like appeal to it. My 3 boys LOVED it...also sprinkled cinnamon on top of it.

We love this recipe because it's a lot less work than your normal apple pie... BUT... it can come out a bit like "cake" if you don't measure the flour correctly. We also tend to put less sugar in it, only because we don't like our deserts so sweet. That being said, the best compliment I can give is that 9 of the last 10 apple pies that we've made have been this recipe!

I think this recipe is GREAT!!!! I've made it for taking to other people's houses, as well as to make it for us here at home. Great with a scoop of frozen ice cream/frozen yogurt! I've even used Splenda in it, it is just a great recipe all around!!!! Thank you!!!

I wasn't sure about this recipe, but I figured I would try it because the calories and fat from the crust are cut out. I added 1/2 cup of sugar to the recipe because it didn't seem sweet enough. The ingredients that make the "crust" were very dry, according to the recipe it seemed like it would be more liquid. But it turned out okay, it didn't really seem to make a "crust" but it did hold together at the bottom.

Though this pie looked pretty weird, it tasted pretty good. It could have been a little sweeter, but I thought it was pretty good overall. Very easy to make.

This recipe didn't really make a crust, and by the time it was done baking, the apples seemed a little dry. Also, it wasn't very sweet.
