THIS PIE WAS AWESOME
Agree with previous reviewer -I found this recipe so easy to make and it tastes so good! I made it in a glass pie dish and it kept together and sliced well.
I made this recipe for the first time tonight to take to dinner with friends. I chose it because it was easy and I had all the ingredients. It was a big hit with everyone, not too tart or too sweet, but with just the right amount of flavor. The crust was very light and flavorful. The entire piece held together well when cut. It could probably be made in any pie pan as well, as it didn't seem to stick at all. I will definitely make this again.
