This is the easiest apple pie in the world to make. I like to use fresh Granny Smith apples. For special occasions I make a lattice top for this all-American treat!

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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

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! Read More
