A family favorite in demand every fall. A little extra work but completely worth the effort. The brandy sauce completes a divine dessert!!
Just a warning- this will take some time to complete. You could most likely make the crust and sauce the day before to spread out the time spent. This had a lot of flavor, and I really think using the apple cider in the pie crust was subtle but worth it. The brandy sauce was awesome both with/without brandy .That is a trick I think I will try out with other pie crusts! If you are wondering where the pie crust and Brandy sauce recipes are ( a few people stated they couldn't find it)... click on the link on the recipe list and you will be brought to that recipe. I did have two problems though and maybe someone has advice- I am by no means a professional! First, the apples were still very firm... can you cook the pie longer but cover the crust to prevent over-browning or should the temp be dropped? Also the bottom crust didn't seem completely cooked but perhaps it was just wet from the liquid. Is it possible to blind cook the bottom crust for a little in this type of recipe?
wonderful pie, the apple jelly really adds an extra flavor layer
This was the best pie I have ever made. It look a bit of time in peeling the apples, but it was worth every second. The cornmeal crust dough was easy to make and simple to put into the pie dish. The extra brandy caramel sauce was delicious over vanilla ice cream. This will be the dessert I will make anytime I have to impress anyone. Easy, excellent pie! I wouldn't change a thing.
This is the best apple pie ever. The crust was perfect and the brandy sauce was fabulous. It was time consuming for me, but well worth it. You won't be disappointed.
This is my sons favorite pie. We can it apple mountain pie because its so high. We don't do the sauce. Love it.
Awesome. My mom was like "There's no way you'll be able to fit all those apples in there." But I did! The pie was on the tart side, in a good way, very apple-y. Will make this for Thanksgiving, might increase sugar.
I have not made this, but think I would replace the peanut brittle with toffee bits & pecans, to go with the brandy-caramel sauce. I don't care for peanut-sweets.
For the recipe for cornmeal crust and for the sauce- you need to click on their titles and it will bring you to the full recipe for each of those. I hope that helps you!
I waas just reading this recipe as apple pie is one of my favorites. I don't understand the recipe for the "Cornmeal Crust". There are only three ingredients and none of them is cornmeal. There is something missing. Would love to try this pie but would appreciate the correct recipe for crust. Thank you.
This is hands down the best apple pie I ever made or eaten! Apple pie is my husband's favorite and he begs me to make this about once a month. The crust makes the recipe! I don't change a thing and it's perfect every time.
Wow! What a great apple pie..even without the sauce (but I recommend the sauce). I used braeburn apples as someone suggested. This will be my 'go to' recipe for an apple pie.
My whole family loved this pie. I will definitely make it again. I used what apples I had on hand which were Fuji. I also doubled the crust recipe and mixed it in a food processor. I froze the extra crust and used it again for a different pie. The frozen crust was good but it was definitely better fresh. I donât think you can go wrong!
My husband and I made this pie. I had never made a crust from scratch and it was great. The pie was huge and everyone loved it.
I first made this pie as is and it was o.k. ( the filling). The second time around I used different apples, added more sugar and spices. What really makes this pie is the cornmeal crust and brandy carmel sauce. Lots of work but worth it. With my revisions, I won a dessert contest at a workplace event.
Tastes good, looks pretty.
Superb! I could hardly get all the cut apples in the pie dish-the TALL crust is delicious! It holds its shape almost like a Taco-Salad Shell. I used Pillsbury pie crusts and rolled the cornmeal into it. I couldn't find all the exact kinds of Apples - it still tasted great! I have given the recipe to friends...I can't wait to make another.
So, so good y'all! Buy a deep dish pie pan and an ole fashioned apple peeler, and get to work on this recipe! Best apple pie ever!!
This is the best apple pie I have ever tasted! The directions were easy to follow- I even made the piecrust which I always buy- and it turned out perfect! The caramel sauce finishes this desset so that it tastes extra special!
Oh, my! This was WONDERFUL! I made only two slight changes - I used Pillsbury pie crusts and substituted about a 50/50 blend of Amaretto and Apricot Brandy for the brandy in the sauce. Served it at Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. I'm known for my fabulous apple pie recipe, carefully edited and tweaked to perfection over the years, but this was BETTER! I had to say it first, no one wanted to say this was better than my own recipe, but after I said it, everyone quickly agreed that they'd like me to make THIS recipe from now on! And I totally agree - this is awesome! Do not skip the sauce, that is what makes it so delicious!
This pie is not that difficult to make and rates the best reviews I have ever gotten!
This pie crust is the most amazing I've ever had - and I'm not a crust person! Made the pie last night - recipe was right on target with bake time and everything - couldn't stay up to let it cool, so I tried it for breakfast with a cup of coffee. Now, I just want to eat the rest of the crust - so flaky and rich tasting. The filling is delicious. This will definitely be a keeper!
I made this Double Apple Pie with Cornmeal Crust for a dinner party the other night & it was a huge hit! I baked it for 2 chefs and they loved it. This was the most delicious apple pie I have ever tasted. The caramel sauce that goes with it is amazing and compliments the pie so well. I also served my pie with fresh whipped cream. I will make this pie again & again! I hope you try it too. You will not be dissapointed! Do not omit the Apple Jelly in the pie filling or the cornmeal in the crust, this pie is perfect!
