So, me and my boyfriend had never baked a pie ever before. This is the first one we tried, andnow itll be the only one we use. We did modify it though, simply because we accidentally left some things out. We did NOT use the lemon juice. Which would be why ours wasn't tart. Also we used Fuji apples instead. They taste better. Another thing is that we used A basic flaky pie crust recipe, also found on this site. Also we baked in a glass pan covered with tin foil for 45 min. then uncovered for 15. Came out nicely golden and cooked crisp on edges. For the topping we rolled out the mix into a second pie like crust and sealed the pie completely, Cutting slits in the top to make it look like an authentic home made pie. Ill add pictures as soon as our 4th batch is done. They have all come out sweet. and weren't soggy the next day as others have complained. Although....everyone know leftovers don't keep as well as the original. Maybe its how you're storing it in your fridge. As to the smarty pant that caught their kitchen on fire with a paper bag...there is a difference between a paper bag and baking parchment paper. I'd never made a pie before and even I knew that.
