I had a bunch of Granny Smith apples I wasn't going to eat so I looked up a simple pie recipe. I am not a baker or chef and this was extremely easy. It was also so delicious I felt safe sharing with my neighbor. They loved it too.

I think you really have to like granny smith apples to enjoy this pie. I substituted 1/4 of the apples with honey crisp and the filling was delicious. I also used store bought pie crust. Despite following the recipe to a t my pie came out very watery. Perhaps it was the honey crisp apples? Regardless this is such an easy pie to make and once I figure out the details I definitely think it could be a special occasion pie.
