This is a Delicious Apple Pie. The Recipe I Printed did not call for 1/4 cup of cinnamon, it calls for 2 to 3 teaspoons of cinnamon and that is just right. I made it in the morning so it had time to thicken before serving for dinner.

One of THE BEST apply pies I've ever tasted as well as one of the easiest to make!

Should have been good but there was way too much cinnamon in this recipe. That's all I could taste, even using the Granny Smith apples. I would cut the amount in half, at least. Also, even though it is deep dish, don't mound up the fruit too much. You have to pour the topping over the pie at the end and if it is peaked too much it runs right off the sides and makes a mess. Make the crust taste wonderful but just messy.

I made this recipe yesterday. I didn't put any pears in it. Also, I only used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. It smelled so yummy while baking. I waited two hours before cutting it like it said, but it was still very loose and runny. This pie is very rich and sweet. Eat just a few bites or you will have a 'sweet overload'! I suggest waiting til the next day to cut it. I put it in the frige overnight and when I cut it this morning, it was firm...so I could get nice cuts and pretty pieces. Also, the flavors seemed to mellow out as well...not as sweet. I would definitely make this pie again, and maybe to avoid the 'sweet overload', I might not put the 'praline' topping on. This would make it a yummy 'plain' apple pie.

It was good but i definitely think it was a little heavy on the cinnamon but I would definitely make it again but with less cinnamon. But my kids liked it and thats all that matters to me.

My family ate all of this very rich pie in one setting. I did reduce the cinnamon to 1 Tbsp instead of 1/4 cup. The best part was the pecan glaze topping...Yummy! Delicious thru and thru.

The praline topping was incredible on this pie, and it was a great idea! The two things I might do differently next time are 1) using fewer pecans in the glaze on top because I loved the praline coating and 2) cooking the fruit a little bit (not all the way... it will cook in the pie as well) to allow softer fruit when the pie is done. Amazing though!

Delicious and easy to make. BUT, reduce the ground cinnamon from 1/4 Cup to 1 teaspoon. This is obviously a forgivable typo.
