1. Vegans, use coconut nectar instead of honey and brush the top of the pie with melted vegan butter.
2. Another cooking method for the pie is as follows: Put a baking sheet on the bottom oven rack and preheat to 425 degrees for at least 30 minutes. Put the pie directly on the hot baking sheet and reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake until the pie is golden and the filling is bubbly, 1 hour to 1 hour, 10 minutes.
