I added a tablespoon of both cinnamon and cardamom to the sauce, that was the only alteration I made. I followed everything else to the letter. That said, I see no value in pouring the sauce over the top. You have to be careful not to make a mess and you don't get the most even coat of sauce on the apples that you possibly can. I noticed some bites were slightly more or less tart than others because of the uneven sauce distribution. Something else that would have made this better for me would have been to bake it at 350-375F for the entire time, and for 20-30 minutes longer, because the apples could have been a bit softer. They were JUST soft enough for me. If they would have been any more firm, this would have been a 3-star pie. Although this was good apple pie, and I am certainly not disappointed, I don't think I'm done searching for my regular go-to apple pie recipe. Only after I made this pie did I notice plenty of other recipes that don't require an entire stick of butter.
