Meet the Cook: When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words - they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. ("That was very interesting!" one judge said.) Working with children is something I love. In fact, I hold "Fun with Food" classes after school for elementary students ages 6-8. My own family consists of my husband and our daughter, 11. -Lisa DiNuccio, Boxford, Massachusetts

"I rated this as a 5* recipe. I tried this recipe 11/01/14 and have found it to be very good! I admit that I had made slight adjustments on this recipe. I baked this pie for 45 to 50 minutes. delowenstein

(I have tried to list the other adjustments, but I couldn't get any farther than what I've reviewed here!)"
