This pie was not good! My kids would not even eat it. The cloves are way too strong and make the pie almost bitter tasting. Also not enough flour added to the filling made the filling runny and wet. I wanted to like it I really did.... But the spice combination was way over the top and overwhelmed the fruit. Beware unless you LOVE the taste of cloves or omit them all together.
I cheated and used a store bought crust, but I had nothing but rave reviews for the pie. Even heard "it was the best thing I ever tasted"
