A friend who NEVER bakes gave me this recipe recently. I think she's made this pie once a week for the past 6 weeks now! This one is great!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a medium bowl, combine the apples, flour, and cinnamon. Mix well.

  • Line a 9 inch pie pan with pie dough. Pour thickened filling mixture into pastry-lined pie pan. Arrange apple mixture evenly over filling. Top with second crust, seal and flute the edges. Cut slits in top crust.

  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Cool for at least 30 minutes.

  • In small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon softened butter. Blend until smooth; pour evenly over warm pie. Refrigerate for AT LEAST 1 1/2 hours before serving (longer is better).

Don't be pushed away from this one by those who say that this is not an apple pie for apple pie lovers. It is. The custard makes it less traditional but it's still fantastic. I made 2 of them for a small dinner party- enough for everyone to have some and some left over which was greatly appreciated. It got rave reviews. I like others also used three apples in each one plus some apple pie spice with the apples (and more cinnamon) and I also added a little cinnamon to the glaze which added just the right extra touch in my opinion. Try this- you'll love it. Oh- and warm each slices in the microwave about 25-30 seconds. It's so much better that way! Read More

The fillings are good as is the glaze hence 3 stars but they just DO NOT go well together. I'm with some of the other reviewers. Use a different filling I think then it would make a wonderful pie especially with peaches. My hubbys favorite is Apple Pie thats why I gave this recipe a shot. He said this pie was "O.K. but don't make it again." I agree with him. I think it all boiled down to this...... If you are a die hard Apple Pie lover try another recipe. If you aren't so much into Apple Pies then give this one a shot maybe you will like it. Read More

All I have to say about this pie is YUM! The custardy filling and the spiced apples combine to make something so wonderfully delicious and the plain old pie crust could be a dessert by itself when you add that delicious sugary glaze on top. I highly highly recommend this recipe. A couple of suggestions: 1) The recipe suggests serving the pie cold but try it at room temperature or slightly warm (30 seconds in the microwave should do it) 2) One more apple will add a little thickness and 3)The thinner your apple slices the better! Thanks for this recipe! Read More

WONDERFUL! I'm not a baker but have made this pie many times and it never fails to get rave reviews. People fight over seconds. - slice the apples very thin or precook them if you like thick chunks of apple. Try it with pear and/or peach. Adding walnut pieces is a nice variation. Use aluminum foil at the end of baking to keep the crust from getting too brown. A little extra cinnamon or lemon zest in the glaze is good. (I use an extra deep dish make a lattice top and extra custard and glaze.) Make 2 and hide 1 if you want leftovers. Delicious! Read More

Thank you so very much for this recipe! I did make a couple of major changes but this recipe was the inspiration for exactly what I was looking for. First I made only one crust using whole wheat flour and butter flavor crisco. I made a crumb topping and did not use any glaze. I followed the instructions exactly for the cream... sooooo good. I used 3 apples and chopped and sautéed them before spreading them on top of the cream. This pie is the best!! Rat Rod Jess Lactose intolerant may have to add a little more cornstarch with the milk substitute. I've made pudding (not this one though) with soy milk before and it turned out great. Read More

I made this for a few friends I had over for dinner one night. As I was still serving one of the guys that just couldn't wait exclaimed "Wow!" Everyone loved it. I had a deep dish pie pan so I doubled the cream sauce and added an extra apple. I also increased the amount of cinnamon I used--probably about 1 tsp. Needless to say wonderful. Read More

A unique pie with a great taste. Everyone loved it. Chilling the pie is an important step don't skip it. I would love to make this pie again using cherries instead of apples. mmm... Read More

I liked this pie. Not the best apple pie I've ever had but it was good. That said I read other reviews and took some advice I wish I hadn't. I doubled the glaze and it was too much. The advice I liked was that I used 4 apples a tad bit more cinnamon and it was good! Read More
