      I definitely give this recipe five stars. It turned out delicious. I added a splash of orange juice to the mix. It turned out wonderfully. The only thing I might change would be to peel the apples first. It simply never occurred to me. We just got a little more fiber with our pie, I guess.

      My 6 year old DD just made this "almost" all by herself. It is really wonderful...made exactly as directed, used fresh gala apples. They were small apples so I used 7 and probably could have added two more. Thanks!!

      I made the pie as directed with the exception of cutting the nutmeg in half, adding an extra 1/4 t of cinnamon and 1/4 t cloves-just personal preference. The filling was perfect- not at all runny. I let it get really thick before taking off the stove. Easy recipe-toughest part is actually getting the filling in the pie-really tempting to just get out the ice cream!
