The Easy Apple Pie recipe listed below the video did not have the same ingredients as he showed in his Easy Classic Apple Pie video. Ingredients and oven temperatures were different also.

@Kimberly No, don't bake the crust before. Bake it all together, including the apples, crust and crust top. :3

HELP I'm not a pie maker and I'm confused. Do I bake the crust before I add the ingr to cook a pie or do I add the filling and then cook the pie?
