Apple pie

When you have a bag of granny smith apples, you are craving something sweet, so you decide to make some Apple Pie.

I believe this recipe has all the potential to be a delicious pie, but my execution did not do the justice it deserves! The pie pan I used was too wide, so there was not enough pie filling to fill the pan and my apples were sliced too thin, so there were some bites that lost that apple texture. I reckon if I make these minor adjustments the pie will taste fantastic!
