    Dang it! The linked recipe for the Pate Brisee crust (http://www.marthastewart.com/355341/lucinda-scala-quinns-pate-brisee) only makes a SINGLE 15x10 crust. You have to DOUBLE the recipe to make the double crust called for here. I discovered this when I was rolling out my dough. Didn't have time or ingredients to make a second crust, so I topped it with a streusel topping instead. Next I will know...

    Why are all you people posting reviews of a COSTCO pie??? Who cares??? If you didn't make it from scratch you shouldn't be posting reviews!!! It is very confusing and not fair at all.

    I agree that this pie (the frozen, Costco version) was a huge disappointment! There was no sweetness whatsoever to balance the tart filling. We also found it to have a very salty overall taste. It did look good, but that didn't make me feel any better when I had to throw it out- Nobody wanted to eat it!!

    I decided to buy one of these before I made one and it was such a great tasting pie!!! It was the most popular dessert at our thanksgiving dinner other than the 3 layer butterscotch cake from the november 2008 issue of Living. The apples were nice and tart and the crust was so flaky. I will for sure buy a few more and store them in my freezer for when i dont have time to make one. Bravo and good work to all of you who came up with this!

    We bought one at Costco and stored it correctly, baked it this evening, sampled it and are very, very disappointed. Thank goodness we did not plan to serve this to our guests tomorrow for Thanksgiving dessert! Apparently somewhere along the way someone forgot the sugar!!! We plan to complain and attempt to get our money back.

    I made this and it's delicious! Only advice I'd give is to make 1 1/2 batches of Pate Brisee because one recipe didn't fit my 1/4 sheet pan when I rolled it out! Another "Good Thing" I use Nielsen-Massey vanilla paste instead of vanilla beans which tend to dry out...that way you get the beans already in the paste. I used 1 TBL for the recipe but next time maybe just a tad less. You can find it at William Sonoma!

    I bought this pie at Costco....I totally agree wilth "whatscooking" the pie crust was awesome but, the filling was missing something....like maybe sugar! I think they need to go back to the drawing board on this recipe.

    FYI - Lucinda said she used Granny Smith, Gala and Northern Spy apples. The recipe here says different varieties but Granny Smith give great tartness! Sometimes a one Jona Gold works too.

    Today I bought the slab pie at Costco. I followed the directions and brushed it with an egg wash and sprinkled sanding sugar like on the video. It came out of the oven looking lovely. After dinner, I served it to my guests and we were so eager to taste it. The crust was so flaky. My Dad, a professional baker was impressed with the crust. We all tasted and the filling was a disappointment. Could Kirkland have forgotten to add sugar to the filling? Whatscooking.
