I don't know what went wrong tonight, but it took 2 hours to bake this pie. I've always had great success with apple pies, but this is the first time I've ever tried this particular recipe. I used a mix of baking apples fresh from a local orchard, which I do every fall. But the apples were so dry looking after 45 minutes in the oven. There was absolutely no moisture for well over an hour and then it took another hour to get enough juice to bubble. I eventually covered the crust with aluminum foil to try to prevent it from getting much darker. We'll have to see tomorrow how it tastes. I realized later that this recipe never called for setting the apple mixture aside for a few minutes. Maybe that's what I should have done. I do say, though, the house smells phenomenal! Wish me luck tomorrow when I take it to my gathering for dessert. I won't have to worry about a soggy crust, anyway.
