Made as written except added a handful of walnuts on top before putting the top crust on. Hubby and I really liked it!

I made this last night and it turned out amazingly well. There are a few things I would do differently but they all have to do with the crust and not the filling for the pie. I loved how thinly the fruit was suggested to be sliced. I would definitely make this pie again!
