Fabulous! I did not have the lemon so I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the syrup mixture. I also was out of rum so I used 1 tsp of rum extract. This is so delicous and fairly easy to make. Next time I might make a little bit more of the crust mixture because I did not have enough to press around the side of the pan. This was better than your typical same apple pie. Highly recommend trying. Thank you for posting!
