I used a store bought crust and golden delicious apples and this pie was delicious! My teen aged sons love it.
Made this pie with my 14yo daughter last weekend and it was delicious and quite easy to make. The only change was that I used a Pillsbury pie crust. I plan on making it again this weekend for company.
This is the best apple pie I've ever made and I've been making pies almost 30 years. I use apples from my trees and my own crust, but the key is the filling ingredients, I don't change those at all.
