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

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! The Test Kitchen
