    Followed recipe using 5.6 oz or 1.25 cups of flour. The difference between 8oz of liquid and 8oz of flour is that liquids are heavier than dry things like flour. Anyway, very good pie!!

    Couldn't decide whether to make an apple pie or an apple crisp and then I came across this recipe. Hubby doesn't normally eat dessert and he loved this pie.

    I was wonderfully surprised with the results of this pie! I had three pies total for Thanksgiving and this was the best out of the three (and the only one that was 'light'). I plan to make this for many years to come!

    Very good besides the fact the recipe calling for 5.6oz. of flour and saying that it is about 1.25cups, when we should all know that 1 cup equals 8oz. so what were we really supposed to use, 5.6oz or 1.25cups?????

    I noticed there was no cinnamon or other spices to mix in with the apples so I added some. The crumb topping kinda disappeared and wasn't very crumby or anything special. The recipe calls for thinly sliced apples, which is what I did but they lost all their shape; probably would have been better in more generous slices.

    This pie was ok, not amazing. I didn't really like the caramel sauce and it was a little on the dry side in terms of filling. Flavor was good, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the filling.

    I wanted this to be better but encountered two issues: 1. The apples were a bit undercooked - I followed the directions exactly so am not sure if this was the recipe or my error. If anyone has a tip, please let me know. 2. There was not nearly enough topping to cover the pie - I had to double it. Overall it was okay but I would probably find another apple pie recipe next time...

    This turned out very nicely. I did use store-bought pie crust, otherwise followed the recipe to a T. I think the combination of Granny Smith and Fuji is perfect. When these apples are sliced thinly, they cook up very well; not underdone, and not mushy. I would definitely make this again. Not necessary to add spices. This is a caramel apple pie, and caramel apples are not made with cinnamon and nutmeg.
