      This recipe wasn't very good AT ALL. After baking as directed for 40 minutes, the filling was still liquid and I had to keep it in the oven an extra 10-15 minutes to get it even a little bit thicker. Also, I don't think it had enough butter in it...the crumb mixture was very floury and the pie didn't have a very smooth flavor to it.
