This was a really delicious apple pie!! I picked a lot of wild apples that I thought would have been great for apple pie so when I made it, it durned out great! One thing though, there was so much apple juice in the pie after it was cooked that i actually had to empty out a whole bowl if it, so maybe next time I would reduce the amount of apples used, but after that, everything was perfect. - 11 Sep 2014
