I used red delicious apples, margarine in place of butter (all I had), and made my own brown sugar with a mixture of 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 tablespoon molasses (I was out of brown sugar too!). I only had 4 apples, but it was enough, and I cut the apple slices on the thin side and simmered them in the caramel sauce on the stove for about 5 or 6 minutes, covered, before pouring them in the pie crust, to avoid them being under done. I also mixed 3 tablespoons flour in with the butter as another reviewer suggested to thicken the sauce some. I was a little nervous because this was my first apple pie, but it came out great. Even my picky husband who doesn't like apple pie at all really liked this. Thanks again, Chef John for another great recipe!
