    This is such a perfect recipe! I made this pie 2 weeks ago and everyone loved it! The apples and blackberries mixed together were such a beautiful flavor. THANK YOU!

    I made this yesterday for Thanksgiving. There is a discrepancy in the amount of sugar between the recipe as listed and the video. I used the stated 1/4 c plus 2 tbs, the video says 3/4 c. Be sure to try your berries - if they are sweet, then 1/4 c might be enough. If they are sour/tart like mine were, I would use the 3/4 c at least. But it was still very good and so beautiful!

    I baked this today for Thanksgiving and it was delicious. I couldn't find most of the apples listed above, so I used a combo of granny smith, braeburn and pink lady. I also used the suggestions AliceMV listed below. I added more sugar and fresh squeezed oj to the mix.

    I made this pie for Thanksgiving, and it looked beautiful! I followed the recipe but the filling was alittle dry. I rewatched the video and Martha said to add 3/4 cup sugar while the recipe says 1/4 cup. Maybe this is why it was not as juicy a filling. Also, didn't bake it the full hr 45 after reducing the temp but relied on how it looked--about 20 mins shorter than it called for. Received many compliments! Next time, I?

    I baked mine at 400 for 30 minutes, then knocked the temp down to 350 for an hour and ten minutes, turned out perfect, can't wait to finish dinner to get my paws into it!

    My apples are about an inch below the crust. What happened? Baked it for 20 at 400, 1:45 at 350. Crust looks perfect. Thanks

    DON'T cook it as long as it says! It is a mistake, only cook it for an hour. I just ruined my Thanksgiving Apple Pie - I am so frustrated!!

    When she made this pie on her show with Rachel Ray a couple weeks ago, Martha said that after the initial bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees, bake at 350 for an additional hour. In this recipe, it says to bake an extra hour and 45 minutes! That's a pretty big discrepancy, does anyone know which is more accurate? I don't know how long to bake for!
