"Awesome pie! I love apple pies and this was no exception. I used 8 granny smith apples sliced thin, tossed in the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, a few splahes of lemon juice, left out the almonds and ..." See morealmond extract and opted for a couple tsp. of vanilla instead. I also left out the butter and tossed in 1/4 cup of cornstarch vs. flour to thicken up the juices. I used "Baker's Secret Pie Crust" from this site which is phenomenal! I baked this the night before (1 hour and 15 min.) to let the pie set before cutting into it - I must admit temptation almost got the better of me but I didn't want to ruin it. When we did finally cut it open boy was it incredible - the apple slices were piled nice and high, it thicken up beautifully and it went perfect with vanilla ice cream and a dollup of whipped cream - hey you have to indulge once in a while!"
"I made this with a frozen pie crust..Mrs. Smith's deep dish frozen pie crust..They come as 2 frozen shells...you take one out of the pie pan and let it thaw for about 20 minutes, then use it as your t..." See moreop crust. Then I cooked the pie in the other frozen shell and pie pan. The crust is unbelievable! Now, lets talk about this recipe. I was interested in this particular recipe becasue it specifically called for macintosh apples and thats what I had on hand. Ive never made a pie with macs before. I usually use granny smith. Anywho, Let me give you some advice. Cook this pie the day before your going to slice into it. I cooked it and sliced into it about 4 hours after I took it out of the oven and I was left with a soupy mess on my hands. I blamed the macintosh apples thinking there was too much moisture in the apples. I was very upset. BUT......THE NEXT DAY!.......I went to go look at my soupy mess and it was completey "SET".....Now, Im not a big apple pie maker, but I thought beginners should know to let the pie completely cool and set before digging into it. Thats why Im giving it 5 stars. It was delish! Sweeter than the granny smith I usually use. Great with icecream! I also didnt use the extract...I dont think I'd like it in an apple pie."

"I learned from experience and from old timers that you don't use soft/sweet apples for pies. They make the pie very runny. Use firm/tart apples such as granny smiths and you won't have a runny pie.Sli..." See morece it somewhat thin so it will cook thoroughly. Sometimes, I will add one semi-firm such as red delicious, ida red or any other semi-firm apple. Using granny smiths,you will find that is the reason for this amount of sugar in the recipe. Ever since I found this out, it has made me bake apple pies a whole lot more often."
