loved this pie! The praline topping turned an ordinary apple pie into something you would see at a nice bakery. I only used 2/3 cup sugar in the filling and would probably cut that back even more. Also, since the instructions say to slice the apples thin, the cooking time was too long. I felt the apples were overdone. But the overall result was wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
