    I’ve been baking for 40 years and have made dozens of variations of apple pies—my wife says this is the BEST apple pie I’ve ever made. I think next time I’ll try a few small chunks of butter on top before putting the top crust on the pie. It’s a small thing but it would make grandmother smile. I will eat a good apple pie for every meal including my nighttime snack—this is a Great Apple Pie! Thanks Zoe.

    I used to think I’d never be able to make a pie because I’ve had so many failed attempts in the past, but I finally did it! I made it for thanksgiving and everyone loved it! Excellent tutorial, thank you for sharing. Btw, I used vegan butter and veggie shortening instead. It worked just as well. (:

Thank you for the fantastic instructions and guidance.
