  2. 4 stars
    I made this pie last weekend and it was fantastic. The flavor us great. The only problem I faced is that it was a dry pie. There wasn’t enough sauce. Like I said, the flavors were great but it just wasn’t very moist. Any suggestions?

      You can use a little more butter to moisten the pie if you need to.
