This was my first pie, ever, so I followed the recipe exactly. I added nothing, no spices, no other kinds of apples, nothing. The only thing I didn't do was use 8 apples. I used about 6. Now, I am stunned that there are even 1 star reviews! I'm wondering if success depends on the quality of the crust? I'm sure people use different crust recipes, or store bought crusts, and maybe that has some effect on the overall. I used the French Pastry Pie Crust recipe on this site, and it was fabulous. I just don't see how this turned out badly for some. I mean, it's a pretty straight-forward recipe. My only advice is that you should definitely put a cookie sheet under your pie, so the drippings don't fall into your oven. Maybe some people just don't like so much sweetness, and prefer a tarter pie. If that's so, DON'T use this recipe. This is definitely a sweet pie.
