A good choice if the school or church asks you to bring dessert. Kind of like Dutch apple pie.

Too sweet. Next time use less sugar and sprinkle it over apples right before baking. Apples got too syrupy while making crust. Read More

I have to admit I was pretty skeptical as I was making this recipe. I baked it in a 10x15 cookie sheet and was worried that the whole thing would overflow and make a huge mess. BUT...it turned out great. I've never made my own crust before and this was super easy and I used apples from my backyard. I don't know if I would call it a pie so much as an apple pie "square" but once it has cooled it cuts up and serves easily and tastes great! I will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

WONDERFUL! Needed a quick dessert with apples and tried this. Everyone gave great compliments. Def a keeper for anytime and makes a great fall dessert on a chilly night with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! I used a different pie crust recipe because I do not like a "roll" pie crust so I used the "NO ROLL PIE CRUST I" from this website you just press the crust into the pan with your hand so much easier and very crisp and flaky.

Hint: Don't skimp on the butter and brown sugar. I also added some nutmeg and cloves but that's just because I'm not too fond of the "just cinnamon" taste. I also recommend leaving out the 3/4 cup sugar in the apples and adding (about) a tablespoon of tapioca starch in. Otherwise a great recipe: would definitely make it again! Read More

This was AMAZING. I love it. I followed someone else's advice and used the "no roll pie crust 1" for the crust because I hate rolling dough and by doubling that recipe it was perfect for the crust. I also used less sugar and thought it was perfect but sweetness is personal. Thanks for such a great recipe. Read More

Delicious! I only made two changes. One I cut the sugar back to 3/4 cups for the filling and it was just the right amount of sweet (I would up that to 1 cup if I was using a super tart apple like Granny Smith) and I added 1 cup of old fashioned oatmeal to the topping ingredients. I used a 9 X 13 pan. Also the secret to a truly incredible apple pie is to use a variety of apples in your filling. I generally use a mix of Rome McIntosh and Gala. But I also use Jonagold and HoneyCrisp on occasion. Read More
