Did you notice there is no "after" picture of this beautiful pie? That's because it imploded in the oven. Luckily, the flavor was still amazing. Apple pies are like that. You can come out with something that looks near perfection but the apples are crunchy or squishy. Or you can burn the crust but the apples are perfect. Cooking apple pie is an art I have yet to master but you can believe I will keep trying! I read recently that there should be a large enough vent for you to stab an apple with a knife to test for doneness. Can't wait to try it.
