This is a beautiful apple and custard pie that has a few steps including the apple filling, buttermilk custard and crumble topping; but it is worth the effort.
This recipe didn't work for us. It didn't advise the size of the pastry case, more apples should have been included and the amount of sugar in the custard was too much. - 14 Jan 2012
O! This was MOST excellent! It was really the most marvelous and delightful thing, really now. In case anybody would take heed (?), what I did was used a bit less butter and 1 cup of sugar instead of 1 and 1/2. Heart-felt thanks to you my friend! I will use this recipe throughout my life--frequently!!! Whew. MOST EXCELLENT OF ALL. - 03 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
I found that as I've gotten older, I like this less sweet. ReeveofKnoxshire recommended taking the sugar down to 1 cup and I think it's safe to take it down to 1/2c to 3/4 c sugar. As for the butter amount, I came up with the recipe when I was living in Las Vegas and the high altitude and dry climate messed so badly with my crust (hence the store bought crust) and overall moisture that I used a bit more butter than I need to now. Tweak the recipe and find what works for you! Just glad that you tried it or have it saved to your recipe box. Cheers! Carinae - 28 Jan 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
