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?

You did a fantastic job chef John. Never bake turkey before, and when I was looking for the recipes on how to prepare turkey, I came accross your site, and ever since that I'm a fan of yours. So keep up the good work!
