1. Just wondering if you’ve ever prepped one and put it in the freezer? If so, how low did you bake it for when removing it from the freezer?

      Hi Sarah,
      Once the pie is filled straight into a hot oven it goes. If you want to prep like the day before, I would just mix the sugar, flour and spices together and chill the mixture. I would also just chill the pastry.

  2. How far a head can you make the filling? And/or the crust? Working this week right up until the night before our Christmas Eve party and trying to prep as much ahead of time as possible. Thanks!!!

      Hi Kyra,
      You can make the crust the day before and chill it. Bring it to room temperature before rolling. As for the filling, you can slice the apples the day before as well, tightly wrap, then chill. Mix the sugar, flour and spices separately and chill them separately from the apples. Roll out the bottom pastry first then mix the apples and sugar mixture right before filling the pie crust. Note you have to give the pie time to cool before serving it.

  3. I make this pie often with our three children, I have been making it with them for over two years. Please don’t ever move this page or ever lose this recipe. I will probably be making this pie for the rest of my life. I do add a teaspoon of lemon juice to my apples, I don’t even remember why? I also wash the crust with egg white and milk mixed then sprinkle a little sugar over it to give it a crispy sweet crust.I just want to thank SugaryWinzy for making something that brings our family closer together, oh yeah, and is absolutely delicious too!!

      Hi Crystal,
      Yes, unsalted butter.

  5. Hi,
    The recipe seems to be quite easy n want to give it a try however i wanted to ask does the butter n shortening need to b cold for the crust or is it ok at room temperature?

      Hi Saleha,
      The butter should be cold. The shortening is stored at room temperature so it wouldn’t matter for the shortening.

  6. Can I use Granny Smith apples for Thai recipe?

      Yes, they would be ok.

  7. I am new to pie baking and my pie bubbled over and smoke was pouring out of my oven. What one earth did I do wrong? Pie dish not deep enough or too many apples?

      Hi Kelly,
      That can happen if your apples are extra juicy and also if your pie dish is shallow. Try placing a cookie sheet underneath your pie dish to catch the juices. Also note that once the juices start to bubble, your pie is just about done. Hope that helps.

  8. I have tried many pie crust attempts for over 30 years, did this one and love it !!!
    This is now my go to and I don’t have to ask my daughter-in-law to make the pie crust, LOL
    Thank You.

      1. I mean tasty!

  11. Had some organic apples go a little soft and knew I wouldn’t eat them. Found this tonight and made my first pie!!! I am not that great if a cook/baker. I will say I am so impressed with how easy it was to follow along and how amazingly delicious it turned out! Thank you so much!

      Hi Cheyenne,
      I’m so glad to hear that and thanks for letting me know!

  12. I found this on pintrest tonight because a batch of red delicious apples I just bought were on the soft side. I’m an experienced cook but new to baking about 6 years ago and have mastered breads, scones,cookies,pasta exc but have always been intimidated by pies ( cakes other than Betty Crocker too) but gave it a shot. Wow I’m so impressed with the results! Pefectly flaky crust and just the right sweetness in the filling! Thank you for making it easy. I hope when my boys look back some day they will remember the joy of not only cooking but baking pies with me! Thank you again!

  15. I used this recipe today to make an apple pie and it was simply THE BEST EVER! The crust was by far the easiest I have used to date, and the filling was perfect. Thank you!
