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!

    I am always on the lookout for an good fresh apple pie recipe. My hubby loves it, but he is diabetic. I am going to make this using Splenda for baking instead of sugar. I am betting he will like it.
