This pie was a big hit with guests at a party I brought it to. Yes, it is tart. I happen to like my pies a bit tart to balance the sweetness. If you don't, I'd suggest reducing the lemon. I sliced my apples pretty thin, and when the pie was baked, they were mush (but YUMMY!) Perhaps next time, I'll slice them at least 1/2" thick. The topping ends up like a chewy shortbread cookie, and it is very satisfying. If you like gooey, sweet/tart pies, this is the recipe for you. My favorite pie is strawberry/ rhubarb, and usually I think apple pies are boring. This one is a standout!
