Excellent pie. I guesstimated the apples weight and I think I may have gone over 2lb. I had a lot left over. I filled the deep dish pie pan and baked. When I poured the liquid in I had too much of that as well. Don't know what happend there, but the end result is REALLY GOOD!! Next time I will chop up the apple slices a little more and see what happens.

Hi KITTENCAL; I had a very big problem deciding how to rate this recipe. After having the first piece, I couldn't believe that the pie was so good. So, after having the second piece, it was very apparent that the recipe deserved a minimum of 5 stars. The pie set beautifully, the crust was not soggy, the apples were slightly crisp, pie was not too sweet and when I flooded it with whipping cream, well what can I say. However, I decided to try the pie with a Graham wafer/Vanilla wafer/Pecan mixture. After lining the deep pie plate with the mixture, I placed it in the freezer for about 1/2 hour to set. Oh yes, I sliced the apples a bit thinner, then sprinkled them with lemon juice, covered the apples and let them sit overnight. The next day, they were so white and had a slight lemony taaste. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of freshly grated Nutmeg to the mixture. Thank you for sharing such a delightful Apple Pie Dessert. This is definitely a repeat many more time. "Uncle Bill"
