My recipe is only slightly different so I am sure that they taste pretty much the same...this is an AMAZING pie! Fun presentation and tastes wonderful! Make sure you turn it out after only 5 minutes though or it sticks in the pie plate!
I used fuji apples, and slivered almonds intead of the pecans. My family was wowed with how it looked and tasted. Everyone had 2 pieces. So simple to prepare. I'll never go back to traditional pie again.
I have made this apple pie for years. It is our favorite. It also makes a very impressive presentation!! Give it a try....you won't be sorry.
