    It needed a couple fresh apples sliced up to give it a little body.

    Yuk! Cinnamon pie with apples. Had you limited step 7 to "Squeeze the lemon over the apples. Add...brown sugar, flour...and salt. Toss the apples until evenly coated", the result may have been more "classic apple pie". This one is too rich for me.

    tasty filling. the trick of "pre-cooking" the bottom pie crust results in a crisp and light bottom pie was wonderful. appreciate this great tip!
