Made this because my dad loves apples/apple pie, and I didn't use the right flour, I used all purpose and they still turned out good! Would definitely make them again but next time with the flour the recipe called for

i asked for this on my 9th birthday after it won the contest and have requested (demanded) it even since. the great news is that it is still fantastic and becomes a favorite of all who taste it for the first time. The bad news is that I'm older than the recipe! Try this. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do and for even longer than i have already!

My 93 year-old dad has been making this pie for 48 years, and we're just about to make it again. This pie is absolutely delicious!

I have to add to my September review because I've just made it for a whole new crowd for tomorrow's Thanksgiving Dinner. Our tribe of friends typically spend Wednesday prior baking. Everyone got involved assembling the layers and we ended up with extra - oh my! So we filled small ramekins - crusts like pot pies, and varying proportions of these ingredients. Fresh from the oven, we taste-tested from the small ramekins - tomorrow's Hostess announced she would keep the pie 'safe and cool' out in breezeway. That way, she said, she could forget to serve it and have it all to herself!

Well I've been making this pie forever ... and I must admit I don't recognize this photo of it. My version has a lattice top and I make it in a rectangular painted ceramic dish. I remember Thanksgiving Dinners where this pie ALONE caused us all to meet on Friday just to really be able to enjoy it with a cup of tea or coffee as we wrapped holiday gifts. The caramel, the apples, the delicious crust ... yummy. In fact, if there is One Hall Of Fame Recipe for the last Century, I nominate this one.

Like the other reviewers I have made this pie since it was one of the winners. For presenting a picture of this pie as a slice of a normal pie seems to be unjust. The pie made in the baking sheet is beautiful and shows well as a square slice. In fact, that is what attracted me to the pie in the first place. It was prepared uniquely. I have since made cherry, regular apple and always large pans of pumpkin pies because of this technique. Seems to satisfy those who want lots of outer crust and those who want none.
I have had only one problem over the years making this pie. I made it for a baby shower gathering. When it came time to have dessert everyone seem to have a funny look on their faces. I understood why when I took my first bite. I had used salt instead of sugar in the pie. Needless to say, we all had a good laugh and went out to a bakery for something else.

My family has been making Apple Pie ''63 for over 40 years - it is the best pie you will ever make!! It just doesn''t seem like Fall until we make this - in fact we just did last week! It may seem a little time consuming to make, but it is definitely worth the effort. It is great to serve at parties.
