1 (9 inch)
tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced
1 1/3 cups
packed brown sugar
Good flavor but WAY too sweet, even though I cut back on the sugar after reading the reviews. I used 1 cup of sugar in the custard, and scant measurements of the other sugars. Also, the butter is not needed with cooking the apples. I only used 1 Tablespoon and it was fine, and the next time I make this i will either use 1/2 tablespoon or maybe none at all.
Good enough, but runny. We loed the topping though! Wont make again.
I made a few tweaks and the pie turned out very well. I softened the granny smiths in half the sugar and no butter. I used only one cup sugar in the custard and omitted the topping. mmmm, so good!
Saturday night I won an apple pie baking contest at Pumplefest 2006 with this pie!!
It is soooo yummy! I have another one in the oven right now because I didn't really get to have any!
The only things I changed were adding a little extra apples (beware the custard will make it overflow if you add more than the rec. 2 apples) and I split all the cinn with some nutmeg, too. :)
It was a clear crowd favorite and so easy to make!
I am famous within my large family for my pies and have made hundreds of different varities. When I made this for the family all proclaimed that THIS was the best pie I had ever made. Truly a keeper!!!!!!
This recipe calls for way too much sugar!!! For the apples I used only 1/8 cup of butter and 2 tablespoons of sugar. I figured that apples are already sweet on its own. And I only made half of the buttermilk custard with just 1/2 cup of sugar. It was the perfect amount to fill an 8" pie. In addition, I strained the custard to get a smoother texture.....and the pie turned out nicely!
This pie is delicious and very different. Just what I was looking for. The recipe makes enough of the buttermilk custard for 2 pies. Next time I will double the apples and make 2 pies.
I made this pie for Thanksgiving and everyone thought it was delicious. It was very sweet, but very good. My only concern was that it did not slice like a pie. I expected a firm custard. We sp-ooned it out instead. I will definitely make this again.
