Gosh, I hate to say this but I'm an experienced baker and I had trouble getting the large size crust that the recipe calls for. I ended up putting the crust in a smaller cake pan. Also, I had special ordered from back East, spy apples as in my experience this is the best apple for baking. However, it seems they cook up faster than others, as in 50 minutes my apples were too mushy. So, would I make this again. I just don't have the energy and a basic apple pie is faster. I did substitute some lemon juice to add to the xxxx sugar and I think that's preferable to the vanilla. Adds a hint of tartness. Good luck to everyone who tries this pie.
