Tammy's Review: 

This is the best apple pie in the world. Made with the "Foolproof Pie Crust" recipe, and sprinkled liberally on top with sugar, this is my most favorite apple pie, or any pie, ever. It is really, really good! I won't even go into detail about how quickly I can eat the whole pie. I have had numerous people ask for the recipe for this pie (which was passed down to me -- both the crust recipe and the pie recipe -- from my mom). I rate this recipe 10/10!!


Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy


This pie really is perfect. I've always had trouble making a good apple pie, but this one came out so well -- really delicious. I've already made it twice!


Thanks Tammy for this Perfect pie recipe!! My Husband made the comment "It was better then store bought"
I was very proud! And thankfull i used your Recipe!! This was my First EVER homemade pie.. Apples even came from our back yard! Thanks so much!!!


This pie is absolutely delicious!! We had gone apple picking and had 12 pounds of apples, so I was looking for a good apple pie recipe. Since all of your recipes that I've tried have turned out wonderfully, I knew you wouldn't let me down on this one - and I was right. My husband and I LOVE this pie. The only downside is that between the Foolproof Pie Crust and this pie recipe, my prep time was about 2.5 hours... but that included washing, peeling and slicing all the apples, refrigerating the crust dough, etc. Combine that with the fact that I'm an inexperienced cook/baker, and that explains that. However, this delicious pie was well worth the work!!
