    I don’t make apple pie often, we usually have berry when I make a pie. Your looks so good you have me wanting to make an apple pie. :) At our house our favorite apple recipe is apple crisp, I use my grandma’s recipe.

    This pie looks amazing! Last time I made apple pie it definitely didn’t look/taste like yours, and the apples were absolutely terrible lol, I will try this recipe though :)

    Hi Sandra,
    The pie really does look delicious, I’m definitely a sucker for sweet pies (apple or otherwise!) but would generally have custard with it, or cream.

    I have to admit, I’m lazy and would use ready made pastry, but we do get apples off our trees, so I can be allowed that sometimes!

    My favourite go to apple recipe is apple and blackberry crumble, both fruits picked off our trees or the hedgerows on the farm. It’s so quick and simple, and I tend to make more crumble topping base than needed and freeze it, so it’s even quicker.

    I am so curious…. why the baking sheet on the bottom rack? I’ve been making apple pies for ages for family holidays and am just now seeing this added “step” on MANY recipes. Can you offer any insight? Also, what does rotating the baking sheet do? I can’t wait to try these recipes for the holidays though!! :)

    I’ve made a lot of apple pies in my day, but I followed your recipe (pretty much) exactly and I have to say that the pie “goop” tasted awesome – it’s in the oven now, and I think it’s gonna be the star of the Thanksgiving table! Thanks for the baking times/temp changes – that’s really making for a beautiful pie! YAY! I am Spartacus!

      Hi Sheila,

      I would try flouring the counter top again and rolling it out all over. Or simply put in back into the refrigerator for another 30 minutes or so. Sorry I couldn’t answer your question sooner! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving! :)

    This recipe is incredible…..I made it for Halloween and again for Thanksgiving dinner and it got rave reviews from everyone. The pie crust is so flaky and delicious….and the apple filling is to die for. Take the time to make it…..you won’t be disappointed!

    I will definitely try this recipes, but I’m going to use Jonagold apples instead. I like the way they taste, so I hope it comes out as good as yours looks. I am also trying your crust, as mine seems to comer out too dryand yours sounds like it will be more tender. Thanks.

    I am going to make this today, I don’t like pie crust. Prob because I have used the roll out kind for many years for ease. SO I am going home made and making this today. I don’t usually like tons of pie crust (don’t like the taste) so I ususlly do a dutch apple pie, but it looks yummy so gonna do the two crust. We shall see

      Hi Rebecca! I recommend making the crust today, wrapping it in plastic wrap (instructions in the recipe), and just leaving them wrapped in the refrigerator until the next day when you’re ready to use them.

      That’s what I do. :) I’ll make the crust the day before, wrap it, and leave it until the next day. You do not need to roll the crust out until the day you actually make the pie.

      You could freeze the crust, but I would recommend just leaving it in the fridge, if you’re planning on making the pie the next day. :)

    Hi Sandra!

    Your recipe sounds amazing! I am hoping to make it for my Thanksgiving dessert. I was wondering if I could do a lattice work top rather than the full dough top with this recipe. Do you think that would work out?

    Cheers and Happy Holidays!

      Hi Elizabeth! Yes, a lattice crust would work great for the top of this apple pie. :) I hope you and your loved ones have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hello! Would you recommend reheating this before serving? If so, for how long and what temperature? I want to bring this to a dinner party and I’m not sure if I should just bake it before hand and then take it over, or if I can reheat it for a little bit in the oven at the party.

      Hi Lana! While I’ve never reheated an entire whole pie just before serving it, I DO typically heat slices individually in the microwave for about 30 seconds just before serving. This happens when we have pie leftovers from the previous day.

      If you’re taking the pie to a dinner party, I recommend making it the same day – possibly that morning? – and then it’ll be good to go for the dinner party without doing any additional reheating. :) I hope this helps.

    My pie is in the oven right now, the smell that is coming from the oven has the whole house smelling like apple pie. The pie itself looks like you would find in the most expensive restaurants. Can’t wait until it cools and I can try it.
