Reviewed apple pie

Jun 23, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Overall the pie was good but very tart - I used Granny Smith apples and it definitely needed more sugar! The crust came out awesome, but it was a little time consuming. I'm not sure why the recipe calls for refrigerating the dough a second time, after it has been rolled out. This made it very hard to work with because it was too stiff and cracked...

These came out ok. The taste is pretty good but they came out a bit hard - I was expecting more of a chewy texture. The crust was also very crumbly and falls apart easily. Not sure why the texture is off, I did not deviate from the recipe.""

Not worth the effort! I made these for a bridal shower and the end product is very cute, but simply not worth the effort. The cakes were too sweet, which I think is mostly because of the frosting. The frosting was the hardest part - it is hard to work with and difficult to get the appropriate amount of frosting on each cake. Most of my petit four...

I only used the crust from this recipe. I used the filling from Tyler Florence's chocoate tart recipe (which is very good!). While the crust came out really good - it was very hard to work with. It tore very easily and took quite a bit of effort to get it in the pan.""

This is a great dessert! I made if for a baby shower and it was a big hit. I used Anne Burrell's crust from her meyer lemon curd tart and it came out really good (although her crust is a bit hard to work with - it tears very easily). I also used an 11 inch tart pan and it took a little over 25 minutes to set. I also put raspberry's on top, which ...

This is the second time that I have made this recipe and both times the cheese sauce did not come together. The first time I thought that I surely must have done something wrong, so I gave it another try. But the sauce broke again on the second try - it was gritty and just overall not smooth. Very disappointing!! I really like the other components"

This was very simple to make and turned out delicious. I will make it again, but next time I will add a bit more sugar to the apples -- I love when desserts are not too sweet, but even this was a bit tart for my taste (it might have been that I added too much lemon juice because I squeezed about half a lemon into the apples, without measuring). I...
