Apple Crumb Pie

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"I often brown the topping for this special-occasion pie under the broiler to give it extra eye appeal. Watch it carefully, though, because you don't want to burn Thanksgiving dessert! It's a fitting finale for any festive meal."

Sorry, but this recipe did not do it for me.....I followed suggestions but felt it really did not have the flavor I expected. I was disappointed.
