The eleventh recipe I made from the Sweet Tarts & Pies section (the 69th recipe overall in this book) of The Modern Baker by Nick Malgieri, was the one for Maida's Big Apple Pie, on page 182. (We are not publishing recipes from the book, so if you like what you see, buy the book and bake along with or without us).
The taste is excellent, the nice crunchy flaky crust with the cinnamon-sugar apples is one of our favorite combinations. It was easy to make the free-form crust and fill it with the apples. Definitely a repeat, the question is: How soon should I wait until I make another?
