This is the first recipe from EatingWell that I was not at all pleased with. The crust was heavy and dry, the apples were just okay. No stellar flavors here. I cook and bake nearly everyday for various people in the neighborhood, many of them in their mid to late 20's....that being said, I NEVER have to throw out food...this sat on the counter for 7 days and was still only 1/2 gone when I tossed it. Unfortunate.
