Made this for the family tonight served with single pouring cream, and it tasted fantastic! The only thing I would suggest is to make sure you blind bake the base first, if you're making (or rolling out) the pastry yourself, before adding the apple mixture. That way you will get a nice crispy pie base that isn't soggy. Thanks so much for this recipe. It's certainly a keeper! :)
