Well, we liked. Not sure why I needed to add lemon juice to this recipe. That part, I didn't care for in the pie filling. Especially using apple. I made apple and cherry. I'm rating the use of the topping in the recipe. Using cornflakes was a different way to totally use up the last little riments in your cereal box. The only thing that sometimes gets me is the part of the cornflakes in recipes. Should it be plain dry or frosted?? On certain recipes you totally know for sure, especially if your breading meat. So with the fact there is no specifications. I used frosted. I did follow to a T. I liked the frosted cornflakes in this because it added that extra crunch. What I didn't like was when some of the flakes cooked in the filling got a bit tough or slightly rubbery. But that's to be expected because of the liquid part of pie filling. I had some left over topping because I put my pie fillings in small ramekins, and decided to top some sweet potatoes with the left overs...and MAN!!! That was the best. I loved it totally over sweet potatoes way better then pie filling. Oh man. The crunch all the way through, the sweetness of the brown sugar with a hint of cinnamon. It was the bomb. Preferablly I'll make again but with sweet potatoes, or sweet potato pie, even a pumpkin for my kids. And because I made apple and cherry "crumble" pies, the topping tasted better over apple then cherry. Because apples liquid is thicker and not runny like cherry.
