  1. This sounds wonderful. I love using good butter in my pies – for the crust and the filling, it makes all the difference. This is pretty, too. I want to make this one!!!

  2. I love apples and if I just don’t have time to bake a pie, I dice up apples and toss in oats, cinnamon and drizzle with coconut oil. It hits the spot and is nutritious too.

  3. I make a lot of desserts with apples (we’re halfway through an apple cake now), including apple pie. I usually dot the pie filling with butter, but your recipe goes a step further with its butter-sugar-flour mixture on top of the apples. And with an entire stick of butter, it must be good! I’ve marked this recipe for the future. Thanks!

    I have never made a pie from scratch, but this looks like a wonderful one to start with. I have some apples right now that some friends brought me from the mountains that I need to do something with. This is just great. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love apple pie…and apple crumble…and baked apples…and caramel apples. There are just so many wonderful apple desserts, and I love making them with freshly picked apples.

  6. I love apple pie! I always have it for my birthday instead of cake.

  7. Yummy! I don’t know about my Grandma, but my dad always made the apple pies at my house.
    Thanks for the recipe

    This is an interesting apple pie recipe since you pour the sweetened buttered flour mixture over the apples rather than mixing it in the apples. I shall have to try it.

  9. This pie looks so beautiful and something I would lovet to master. I think I will give it a try thanks for posting this wonderful recipe perfect for the holiday. Have a great Halloween.
