"This is the most incredible pie. Cooking it in the brown paper bag makes the filling soft and juicy and the top crunchy. I have made this recipe for over 25 years and everyone who has ever eaten it can't believe how wonderful it is! I was given this recipe by my best friend and I think she got it from her friend's grandmother. After so many years I decided it was time to share it with the world! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Reheats very well.

Oh - my - gosh, Mamadellie!! I have made three different apple pies over the weekend (all from the website) and I must say, yours gets five stars! The ladies at church voted on your pie the most often and it was the first to go! Congrats, and thank you for this recipe, which I have been looking for for the last ten years because when my grandmammy died, her recipes died with her...and this was one of them. Thank you!!
An interesting baking method, which I'll use again. Average flavor. Crumb topping was not at all crumbly.
I've made this kind of pie so many times and have always stapled my paper grocery bag together. It makes the most delicious apple pie and there is NEVER any problem with the staples being near the food.
I have made this pie on many occassions. I use a large Reynolds Turkey roasting bag to put my pie in. I don't have to worry about fire and I close the bag using the twisty tie. The bag is not to touch the top of teh pie.
This is my husband's favorite pie. I have been making it for at least thirty years. It is always delicious, and I always bake it in a brown (grocery) bag. It will smell like paper toasting for a little while, but it is fine! You can close it with a couple of large paper clips, that's what I use.
This made an excellent pie. I didn't cook it in parchment paper or a brown paper bag, but it still came out well.
I didn't put the bag on it...It turned out great...
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST APPLE PIE RECIPE YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE CRUST BURNING.VERY QUICK & EASY ! THANKS
