If you use butter instead of shortening in your crust it will not taste the same or turn out properly. Criso is a shortening

I added juice of one lemon and about 1 tablespoon lemon zest. It keeps your apples from turning brown while preparing the pie and gives a really fresh taste to the pie. A great recipe. Use the turbindado sugar to give a beautiful finish to your pie. Use grated fresh nutmeg, again a brighter fresher taste.You will impress friends and family with this pie.

My dough was not very tasty, as I suppose I didn't follow all the instructions, but the filling tasted good. Very light to eat! Stomach feels perfectly happy!;) P.S. I don't know what "vegetable shortening" is, so just used normal butter...

Delicious apple pie. I didn't follow all of the steps for the pie crust but it turned out just great.

I've made this a few times now. The pie filling tastes good; using granny smiths makes a noticeable difference, gives it a tart flavor, whereas some sweeter apples were a bit overwhelming. Whether I used home made or store bought frozen pie crusts, I ran into the problem of the bottom not cooking properly. Next time I'm going to put the pie dish directly on the oven rack, rather than on a baking sheet, to make sure the crust gets baked nicely.
