I like to mix my apples, using Macs, Cortlands, Granny Smith, Red Del. it seems to make the pie more flavorful.

Anyone ever try the Ritz Crackers Mock Apple Pie recipe? I've read some reviews on it. Most people really like it. I'm soooooo curious about it. I will have to try it one of these days. I mean, imagine, an apple pie with no apples. It's just strange enough that I'm gonna have to give it a shot.

I've never fixed it, but I've had it several times, and it can be pretty good! Saltine crackers replace apple slices ... successfully.

The challenge, I think, lies in adjusting your recipe to suit the apples you choose, not in choosing the right apples. You can make a great apple pie with almost every variety (except maybe red delicious, and even with those if you mix them with something else). Ideally, I like to mix textures and tastes a bit and combine apples in a pie: Granny Smith and Golden Delicious, for instance, is a treat sweet/ tart and firm/soft combination, IMO.

Never tried the Ritz Mock recipe referred to, but I've seen it. I suspect it's good, but I just love the apples.

A chef friend once told me about using all and every kind of apple in pies....Have done it now for years and I must say, they do get raves....even do it that way for a fast apple strudel

I always went the traditional Joh/Mac/Rome route depending on what was in the store. Then I made an apple galette that called for Gala. Never considered them before, but now they are usually my apple of choice. I need to take out one more than I need for the fill, though, since somehow slices of them keep finding their way into my mouth!
