just made your pie. It was great. In factt im making another one for my husband to take to the office.
A nice simple dessert. The walnuts are really good here. The cake is something like a bar cookie in texture, I think. I didn't find my filling to be runny or watery at all. DH loved this!
I sliced the apples pretty thinly, and they were done at the same time as the crust. It really is pretty with the walnuts on top, and has a great texture. I do wish the apple-filling had more substance and wasn't as watery. Very easy, though.
