All good I love pies, and apple pie is my favorite. Of all the recipes I have tried for apple pie, this one turned out the best. April 3, 2013
Amazingly delicious This pie is amazingly delicious. Probably the best apple pie I have ever made, and I've made many. It was so easy to prepare. The only thing I did different was I used my own pie crust recipe. This is the only apple pie recipe I will be using from now on. Thanks for sharing it! November 15, 2012
The Best Apple Pie I love this recipe. I also use two kinds of apples and a small amount of nutmeg with the cinnamon. It comes out perfect everytime if you let it cool completely before cutting the first slice. And the crust...well you cant go wrong with Crisco. Its been around for years and it will be around for many more years to come (I hope)! I have made this several times and I have one in the oven right now. Thanks Crisco. August 27, 2012
