I've done a lot of experimenting in the last year, searching for a reliable and delicious apple pie recipe and THIS IS IT!! The first time I followed the instructions exactly...didn't get to taste it myself because it was used for barter trade but it looked fabulous! I soon found an excuse to make it again. I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 2 tsp lemon juice to the sauce and modified the assembly a bit. Instead of pouring all the sauce through gaps in the lattice top, I put about 95 percent of the sliced apples into the bottom crust, poured *most* of the sauce over the apples, covered that with a single layer of plain sliced apples which meant the top of the filling wasn't goopy, assembled the lattice and kept enough dough to make a raised crimped edge -- that helped contain the sauce that bubbled up all around. Then I drizzled more sauce on top and baked the pie on a pizza stone which ensured that the bottom crust would be cooked through. It came out looking glorious but my photo didn't match the requirements of this website. Too bad because it's fantastic. When I shared the pie with my women's group it was a big hit. This is now my *go to* recipe for apple pie. Thank you, Grandma Ople!!
