Share a little about the ingredients and techniques used to create this dish/item. Butter, lard, Apple Juice, flour for thickener, lemon, cinnamon, sugar, brown sugar, walnuts.. My husband insisted. 3 Granny Smith, 3 red delicious, 2 honey crisp, 2 gala. What are you most proud of? The filling didn't run at all. I regret that I let the top of the pie brown a little too much, but I've been a little off my game last few days, minor illness. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used too much lard vs butter. I'm actually sorry, but now I've learned what ratio doesn't work. I went 1/2 and 1/2 on the fats. It was overpowering.
