Wonderful pie except........the crust came out rock solid! It may have been my fault, as I'm neither an expert with WWF and I always prep my crusts in a food processor, plus when they are done, I usually turn the oven off and just leave them in there to set up better. I had no problem rolling out the crust between the wax paper [great idea for this particular crust] but I did have to add one more tablespoon of water to bring it together, which may have been the reason others had problems.
The taste of the crust was so good however, that I still believe this pie is AWESOME! It's probably the first apple pie I've ever made that wasn't "swimming" in juice, making it difficult to cut. Also, the apple flavor completely came through, possibly because of the minimal amount of sugar, and brown at that! The crumb topping was superb. I didn't have frozen oj, instead using 2 tablespoons of canola oil infused with 1 teaspoon of dried orange zest. The directions for this pie were so clearly described that except for my hard crust problem, it was excellent. I will just buy a crust the next time or skip the WWF.
