"Very, very good pie. Have taken it to a potluck twice and both times, it was the first dessert to go. I sprinkled shimmer white sugar (decorator's sugar) on top before baking - as it appears in the picture with this recipe. This pie makes a beautiful presentation as well as being one of the best fruit pies ever!"
