I made this pie when it was part of the Martha Stewart Thanksgiving box in 2016. Since then they don't have the recipe and I miss it so much! It was FANTASTIC! So now I make it myself and my guests always love it. I make it the morning before the feast or early the day of.

I used this recipe to make my very first apple pie! I used apples from trees on my property (not sure what kind they were). I did tweak the recipe a bit based on Karen's comments. I only used the light brown sugar and I added some cinnamon and nutmeg. I forgot to add the sugar on the top after doing the egg wash. But overall it turned out amazing! My husband said it was the best apple pie he's ever had.

Had I made this pie as is it would have been bland and overly sweet. What I liked about it. The lemon and browning the butter was a stroke of genius. Dislikes no spices and way to sweet. I did use the recommended amounts of sugar. Will not do that again. Did add some traditional apple pie spices which made it eatable with the overly sweet. I would say it was OK, not great. Will make again but reduce the sugar to only brown. Will keep the lemon and brown butter. Will add traditional spices.
