This is by far the BEST apple pie EVER! I was first drawn to it because it's titled with "Grandma"...Since both of my Grammy's are now gone I always think of them while I'm baking and I love your comment about your own Grandma. :) I followed a few of the suggestions from others: I added the tsp of cinnamon, dash of nutmeg and Tbsp of vanilla. And mixed the syrup with the apples before pouring them into the pie. I also prepared the lattice ahead of time, brushed egg whites on bottom crust to keep from getting soggy and baked at 350F the entire time. It was such a pretty pie and DELICIOUS! My mom, who is very particular (& a bit brutal with honesty) :) when it comes to baking/cooking stopped me from eating, made me give her my complete attention, and explained how "perfect" this pie was...the crust was perfect (which is my Grammy's recipe), the apples were "perfectly" sweet, she could taste the cinnamon but it wasn't overbearing, it didn't have the "frozen pie, over-sugary taste" the flavor was just "the best she has ever had". This will now be my Thanksgiving/Christmas recipe from now on! I love it. Thank you for sharing.
