I used a lot of the reviews for this pie when making it. I think the addition of cornstarch and leaving it in the oven for a little extra time (with the oven off) was helpful, as well as a higher baking temperature (I did 375 for 45 minutes). It was still a little messy, but it was a good tasting pie. I also added lemon juice, ginger, and a dash of cinnamon to mine. Oh, and I pre-baked the bottom crust so it wouldn't be mushy or not cooked through. I did an egg wash over the top crust, so it was a really gorgeous little pie when I was done. (In order to not burn the pre-baked bottom, I made a guard with foil over the edges for most of the cooking time, only removing it for the last maybe 10 minutes.) Though, I think there are better recipes out there, so I will either continue tweaking this one while I try to find another. Overall, it was good, but I think it could've been better.
