Very good and easy to make. I use a package of refrigerated pie crusts instead of making the pastry.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2012

an OUTSTANDING pie. everyone just raved about it and it was very easy to make. I did make my own pie crust from another recipe though. The filling didn't run out when it was cut and tasted awesome. I reduced the sugar drastically, only adding maybe 1/4 cup since making it for a diabetic and it was great. Made this 2 more times!
