After sampling the filling, I added a bit of lemon juice to brighten the flavor Also, I NEVER use fresh apples right off the tree, as they need time to lose moisture and concentrate flavor. Also, do not substitute apple juice for the apple cider, as it does not have as much flavor. Finally, instead of using crushed sugar cubes, I just sprinkled the pie with sanding sugar. It makes for a more attractive finish.
I made this pie and it was nothing special. It wasn't very flavorful, not worth the effort.
The most flavorful apple pie I have made. I love the compliments every time I serve it, a la mode of course.
