One of the best apple pies ever! It's so delicious thanks to the variety of apples used. The many times I've made this; it does seem to finish earlier than the directions state so keep an eye on it.
I've made several CL apple pie recipes over the years and like this best; I generally use mostly Granny Smiths with some Fujis or Braeburns, easiest to get around here. I also find its easier to pat the two pastry disks into 4-inch circles, freeze about 15 minutes while prepping the apple filling, then rolling out the pastry. LOVE the milk and sugar topping, so pretty and tasty! I may tinker with the baking times and temps - my kitchen was just remodeled last winter and I'm getting into fall baking mode and finding the new larger double ovens are hotter than my old double ovens and I've got to readjust some recipes. I think I may try just 375 degrees for 50 minutes to an hour next time, I had to make a foil collar this time after the 450 stretch!
I'm not a huge apple pie person, but this was really really good! I made it for a family dinner for out of town family visiting and one of them told me later that they don't normally eat apple pie, and they only took a small piece to be polite, but that they really liked it! And even asked for the recipe! I think the secret here is the combination of different apples- so if you can, don't change that part!
This is my all time favorite apple pie recipe. The variety of apples give this pie a special quality that the eater cannot quite place but knows it is something special. Lately I have been baking it as a phyllo blue ribbon apple pie which works wonderfully and lessons the calories.
This pie has won me many a man's heart! Seriously though, it is one of my favorite and best recipes. The mixture of apples, lemon juice, spices and a beautifully flaky crust is what makes this a true gem in Cooking Lights collection of recipes! A little secret . . . I mix a small amount of vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon into the crust!
Delicious! The different apples made all the difference, even though no one could put their finger on that being behind it. More than one person said this was the best apple pie they'd ever had! Used refrigerated pie crust and it worked great. This is THE recipe to use as a go-to for apple pie and has become mine.
super easy and super yummy. i cheated and used refrigerated premade pie crust. i made it for thanksgiving and its a keeper! my family believes i'm a good cook now!
Excellent pie. I used pre-made crust and cut the apples a little chunkier than the recipe recommended. It looked beautiful, tasted delicious, and everyone loved it.
