I ate the whole pie
I followed the other reviewers with putting the topping on top after baking for 45 minutes. After 10 minutes more in the oven, I had my first slice, then a second. I had to finally put half of the pie in the freezer. Or else, I would have eaten the whole pie. By the way, it freezes well.
My family loved it! I did change a few things though. I placed the brown sugar and the walnut on top of the pie so I wouldn't have to flip it. I thought that would be too tricky. I also added a little more flour for a better consistency. Tasted delicious. My husband is not a big fan of apple pies and this one he ate almost the entire pie by himself - in one week, of-course!
This recipe was easy and delicious. What a fun twist to a good 'ol fashioned dessert!
This is the best apple pie I ever had. The only problem is that its hard to turn over without it falling apart, so I make it so I don't have to turn it over. I start with the crust, then the apple filling, and the the other layer of crust. I bake and when it has about 10 minutes left I put the brown sugar and walnut topping on. It tastes just as good and a lot less messy.
I have made this quick and "oh so easy pie" so much I have lost count. My family love it and it has such an elegant presentation I serve it to company all the time. I have friends and family asking me to make it when I invite them over for dinner. I serve it warm with vanilla ice cream but have found that the next day I actually like it best. We have family fueds over who gets the leftover pieces. I strongly recommend this recipe. It is and will always be a favorite in our home.
