The lemon zest and fresh lemon juice in this pie make it taste so fresh and even more delicious!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The flavors in this pie are so good.  I don’t think I have ever had an apple pie with lemon zest and lemon juice in it, and that really did the trick to bring the flavor up several notches.  I would put this pie up against my Aunt Eileen’s apple pie... which is saying something!

Although Granny Smith is the pie apple most suggested for pies I prefer Jonathon's over Granny. May be a personal preference but I think they make better pie. Old fashioned variety and getting very hard to find. Myself I use only cinnamon and in small amounts so as not to overpower the apple flavor.
