This is what the pie looked like as it was being transferred from the plate where the pie was sitting to the plate where the pie eating was about to commence. As you can see it's all full of apples and crust, and there's some nuts on there, and it looks like the sugar got all melty and whatnot.
The important questions are: Would the pie be edible? Did that clove and nutmeg take things a step too far? Is pie that is baked upside down any more delicious than a pie baked right side up, or is it all just a scheme to get out of the work of putting nuts on the top of the pie at just the right time during baking?
