I made this pie this year for thanksgiving and it was a huge hit! Perfectly sweet and it slid right out of my glass pie dish with no problems. I didn't put slits in the top pie crust and it still cooked evenly with no bubbling over or any problems. I would suggest this recipe to anyone who love apple pie and pecans. It's a winner and Mother in-law approved!
