I made this recipe with my two boys and we had a great time. The pie was delicious. I didn't give it 5 stars at my 6 year old's request because he thought it "took too long." If you are baking with kids, make sure they understand that they will have to wait until the next morning to enjoy the product of their labor. We also had to make a few modifications to get the pie to work well. First, the recipe makes more than can possibly fit in the usual store bought pie crust. I just baked the over flow pie filling in a small casserole dish without a crust along with the main pie. The other main modification was baking time. After 40 minutes the pie is too runny. You need to add at least another 10 minutes. Finally, covering the crust with foil in the beginning produced a deformed pie because the foil stuck to the crust and broke it when I removed it. Instead, bake the pie without covering the crust and then when it browns (20 min into baking) cover it with foil. This way the foil won't stick to the raw dough. In the end, great taste. Thanks!
