I'm completely blown away by this pie. I screwed up the filling somehow--the sugar wouldn't combine with the butter. So I just sort of smeared the sugar onto the apples and then poured the butter over it. Didn't matter--the pie came out so delicious I could hardly believe it. I don't like Granny Smith apples, so I used my favorites--Honey Crisp. I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg, plus a teaspoon of vanilla. I'm not a big fan of crispy crusts, so I only cooked the pie at an hour at 350. It was so soft and sweet and buttery and appley. For the crust, I used a Jiffy mix, but added three tablespoons of melted butter (instead of water) and a third of a cup of sugar, plus a quarter cup of white flour to make up for the extra liquid. The sweet crust really added to the pie.
