I thought it was rather dry. It could have been my apples. I used a combination of Granny Smith and Macintosh.

Of all the new pies I've tried to make lately, this was my favorite. The apples came out perfect...not too soft, not too firm. And the butterscotch crumbs proved to be a perfect compliment to the apple filling. Thanks for posting this recipe Sue.
