When it comes to desserts, I'm a guy who likes to stick with the basics.  Apple pie (maybe a la mode, maybe some cheese), but Apple pie usually does it for me.

If you read me often, you know I do enjoy cooking  Whether cooking for myself or for a crowd I so enjoy the sense of accomplishment taking a list of ingredients and turning it into something special.

Having developed most of my cooking skills since becoming "suddenly single" in the late 80's, I focused on entrees, soups, salads and sides.  I have learned to make a killer appetizer or two along the way.

**Desserts**

No doubt about it.  If there's a void in my mix of culinary skill it's here in desserts.  Hey, it's easy to hide.  Cut up some fresh fruit, whip up some fresh whipped cream and extoll the virtues of the "fresh and simple".

On a few occasions I dusted off a recipe for "old fashioned apple pie" that I guess was my grandmother's.  Know what?  It was sensational!  Know something else?  Baking pies from scratch takes a crazy amount of time. And, on more than one occasion I stabbed myself in the palm with an apple corer.

**Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie**

Let me start off saying "Mrs. Smith, I love you!"  I don't exactly remember how I came to buy my first Mrs. Smith pie but I'm very glad I did.

This is a pie you can pass off as home made.  I've done just that.

This pie has some heft to it.  A nice thick, moist crust encasing over 4 cups of sweet apples and topped with a nice flaky crust. Just enough of a hint of cinnemon to show you cared.

After roughly 70 minutes in the oven and about a half hour to rest this is a dessert to be savored. With some Breyer's Vanilla Ice Cream or some shaved sharp cheddar you can't miss with this pie.  But make sure you're hungry.  This is a big pie.  It will easily handle 8 -10 good eaters.

**Make it your own**

To further give your pie an "I just put this together look" I recommend you make interesting cuts in the raw pie top.  When it's through baking you'll have apple oozing out of the cuts but it gives it a great down home look.

**My Viewpoint**

I've yet to have any difficulty finding Mrs. Smith's Pies in the frozen section of the supermarket.  And, as far as I'm concerned, when Apple Pie perfection is less than 90 minutes away it's hard to pass Mrs. Smith by.  Oh, and did I tell you about her Peach Pie?  Well maybe another time.

Good Eating,

Rudi

One of the worst apple pies out there. Reminiscent of McDonald's apple pie on a larger scale. The filling is a thick cornstarch like mush. The apples are fair at best but too few compared with the enormous amount of filling. The crust tastes like cheap oil. It is better than some of the supermarket choices but that's not saying much. I remember having these pies in the early 80's and they were much better quality.
The best thing about this pie is its sweetness which it has a lot of.

In too deep.

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie:

Mrs. Smith's deep dish apple pie Has some really great pro's. The upper crust is flakey, Somewhat thick and easily sustaining the contents of the pie. The apple area of the filling has a very likable texture. It is not too mushy or too tough. I didn't find any apple core pieces still attached. The gel like fill part was nicely flavored as well, I could taste the cinnamon in the pie. The lower crust was where I encountered the issues. I don't know whether or not it is because of the depth of the pie or not but, The lower crust seemed a bit under cooked or mushy. I attempted to vary the cooking time but the upper crust would become overcooked while the lower crust didn't show much of a change at all. Overall, the lower crust didn't totally ruin the entire pie eating experience. I decided to eat the pie minus the lower crust. Anyway, it saved on calories.

Nothing like homemade pie.

By 

from USA

Comments about Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie:

I can't give this pie a great rating. Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie is not awful for what it is, but it's nothing like a homemade pie. If you have a hankering for apple pie, this will do. However, I would not eat it on a normal basis. It's much more fun to bake your own pie. The filling was a little too sweet and tasted a little too processed for my liking. The crust was wonderful, though. Overall, it's not an awful pie but I wouldn't choose it for my family.

Very good Apple Pie but not as good as the Kroger Pies.

By 

from Placitas, NM

Comments about Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie:

I have been buying the Mrs. Smith's pies for ages now and they were okay but not as good as home made. Recently I got a Bzz Agent Campaign to try the Kroger Private Selection Apple pies and let me tell you you get more than your moneys worth. It is completely loaded with apples not gel . Great texture and taste as well. The Private Selection pies are my new favorite and also my friends and families too. So glad I got this campaign !

Tastes great but HFCS, palm oil, etc.

By 

from Reno, NV

Comments about Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie:

I love MS'sDDAP with ice cream.

Alas, I'm no longer eating high fructose corn syrup, palm oil (major ingredients) or even a little bit of partially-hydrogenated margarine (minor ingredient).

On the bright side, I feel great!

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie is a good as Grandma made.

By 

from Fairfield, CA

Comments about Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie:

How many of us remember the wonderful aromas coming from Grandmas kitchen? I certainly do. Grandma made the most wonderful bread and pies. There are many other things Grandma could make and she never used a recipe. I was always totally amazed at the results. I always needed a recipe. There are many foods I can prepare without a recipt now, but now baking pies.

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie reminds me of the wonderful applie pies Grandma turned out. The aroma of the apples and cinnamon baking made us want to eat that pie as soon as it came out of the oven. You know we had to wait.

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie with a slice of Cheddar cheese is one way. Frankly, I prefer Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or aka mode.

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie is a product using quality ingredients. It bakes up with a beautiful flakey crust and a wonderful filling. If you want to remember the pies your Grandma baked, I highly recommend Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie.

May the last thing you eat on earth be a slice of this pie!

By 

from Granada Hills, CA

Comments about Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie:

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie (special recipe) is in a class by itself. It tastes like homemade because it contains high quality ingredients and you bake it yourself, in your own oven. This product is, however, lately becoming hard to find in local grocery stores. The shelf space has been bought up by competitors, selling an inferior class of frozen pie for more money. The Mrs. Smith's brand itself has resorted to hawking by-the-slice microwave desserts of late, hoping to make pie a year-round thing in the age of no more trans fat. This could be a losing battle, but all I want is to be able to buy their superior three pound wonder just prior to Thanksgiving. If they take that product away, the entire U.S. economy will surely fail. Oh, wait....

Tastes Fresh and Homemade

By 

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie:

I absolutely love serving dessert, especially when it is easy to make, but still tastes homemade.  Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple Pie tastes like it has been made from scratch, but comes from the freezer.  This pie bakes in your oven for about 40 minutes and comes out piping hot and has a great aroma.  The crust is thick and crisp and the filling is a mixture of fresh apples and cinnamon.  Each pie serves about 10 people and is perfect with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel topping.  This is such an easy pie to make because it is right from the freezer, but tastes fresh and homemade.
