I made your delicious apple pie for Thanksgiving. The butter-rum gave it the most amazing flavor. I made serveral different pies and this was one of the most popular. Very easy and good to the last bite. Sinfully rich. Thanks LDJ
It might have been the apples I used, but this wasn't sweet enough and was quite watery despite having baked an extra 10 minutes. Followed recipe quite closely. Only deviation was rather than 1/2 C sugar for topping, I used Truvia (1/4 C). 10 minutes of extra baking might not have been enough (and yes, I've tested my oven).<br/><br/>Rum flavor wasn't that pronounced (also didn't notice the nutmeg as much as I'd like and would suggest adding in cinnamon next time) and if I made this again I would use dark rum and more of it! or extract to get the flavor without all the moisture.
very rich and delicious.... I served it with plain yoghurt and ginger wine - YUM!
