"I made this for Thanksgiving and it was the best pie I've ever made. Also one of the easiest recipes I've ever made. I would definately suggest this to anyone. Follow the recipe exactly and it will turn out just like the picture."

"The top crust only appears like a second pie crust. It's really the crusty top of the filling--crusty from the sugar inside."

"The picture shows a 2-crust pie but the instructions only call for a bottom crust. . .perhaps it's the wrong picture?"
