I have made this several times now. It has been a big hit every time. Eight apples may be too much depending on how big they are. I usually buy large Granny Smiths and five of those are perfect to fill a 9inch deep dish pie plate. I always add 1 Tbsp. vanilla to the sauce. Be sure to remove 1 Tbsp of the water from the 1/4 cup water to compensate for the liquid from the vanilla. I also add 1 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg to the sauce. I like to cover the apples with the sauce before putting in the pie plate. Remember to save some of the sauce to pour over the crust. I also cover the edges of the pie with thin strips of tin foil. This prevents the edges from getting too brown. Remove the foil when you have about 10 minutes of cooking left. I do like the looks of the lattice crust, but it is just as delicious with a solid top crust. Just make some decorative cuts in the top.
