Here's what I did for 2 sour apple pies with a heart lattice top crust: Mix about 12 thinly sliced Granny Smith apples and double the remaining ingredients along with 2 Tbls. Flour, 2 Tbls. Lemon Juice, ½ Tsp. Vanilla and ½ Tsp. Nutmeg in a large bowl. Add this filling to 2 pie pans and top with lattice and hearts made from leftover dough. Brush top crust with egg wash (1 egg and 1 Tbls. milk beaten) to get a nice golden brown crust (don't add thick amounts of egg or the crust will taste like cooked eggs). Cover crust edges and hearts with foil held on with toothpicks so they don't over-brown. When pie comes out of oven, remove foil and toothpicks and sprinkle crust with a cinnamon sugar mixture. I used brown sugar instead of white for the filling. Add more sugar to get a sweeter pie.
