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.

The crust recipe doesn't contain enough fat to form a workable crust, so I had to use an alternate recipe. Upon taking the pie out of the oven, it was full of liquid. Once the pie was cooled and the liquid was drained, it was a decent pie. I am not new to pie making, and I will find a better recipe for my next apple pie.
