Steven's Story

The lemon zest and fresh lemon juice in this pie make it taste so fresh and even more delicious!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The flavors in this pie are so good.  I don’t think I have ever had an apple pie with lemon zest and lemon juice in it, and that really did the trick to bring the flavor up several notches.  I would put this pie up against my Aunt Eileen’s apple pie... which is saying something!

Honey Crisp apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 1/2 lb
granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick

juice from 1 lemon
lemon zest, grated from 1 lemon

    I am always on the lookout for an good fresh apple pie recipe. My hubby loves it, but he is diabetic. I am going to make this using Splenda for baking instead of sugar. I am betting he will like it.
