overall, this is a very good pie with a nice taste. the time for baking is much longer than 30 mins at 325 however. Every time I have baked this it was at least 50 mins. Because of this amount of time in the oven, you may want to put aluminum foil around the edge of the pie to prevent the crust from becoming too brown. Read More

This was an OK recipe. I think it has too much salt because thats all I could taste in this pie. So maybe cut the salt to a 1/2 tsp? I like spicy pies so I thought this one would do the trick. I will probably not use this recipe again. Read More

The way you make the design is you just use a second pie crust and use the dough.. Just roll it out and use cookie cutters to cut out your designs.. place them on top and wala!!! :-) Read More

This pie has become a family favorite. I just love all the spices.. they give it so much flavor! I have found that you need to cut back on the cloves though because otherwise they tend to overpower everything else. Read More
