    I made this last night (Christmas Eve) for eating after opening gifts. Served with the Cheddar and sparkling French apple cider. It was absolutely amazing. I've been experimenting with apple pie recipes for a while, searching for a really good one. This is the absolute best. It's not difficult and it really looks special! Love the fact that the crust recipe produces enough for another crostata.

    Awesome and fairly easy to make! I ended up only baking mine for about 50 minutes because the apples started to char a bit like the previous reviewer wrote. I might've made the pie a little thinner than the recipe said but it still turned out well. Was a big hit at Thanksgiving dinner.

    5 STARS! I am a novice in the kitchen but this recipe inspired me. I gave it a try for our family's Thanksgiving Dinner and it was a HIT! I came out looking just like the pictures and tasted phenomenal! No one believed that I was just a beginner!

    This pie is great! While you're baking, keep a close eye on the oven so that the sugared crust and top apples don't char. I would suggest turning the heat down a bit for the last 30 minutes.
