I am rating it 3-stars as to me a recipe should be successful by following the instructions. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to read the reviews first. I should have trusted my instincts instead of trusting the 5 stars. I started with 6 Granny Smith Apples and even that was too much so we ended up eating almost a whole one. The instructions indicated that I should make the caramel sauce first, which I did, and it looked perfect and I tried to keep it simmering on low, but by the time I was ready to pour it over the pie, it had become thick and globby. I saw that some was going through the pie so I hoped that it would still work. I was inclined to not put it in such a hot oven, but again I followed the instructions. I left the kitchen for a few minutes to check the reviews on the site, and when I returned I found my kitchen was full of smoke! I lost a lot of the caramel sauce as the high heat caused it to roll off of the pie and all over the oven! I immediately lowered the heat. I guess it's one way to force me to clean my oven, which I did as soon as the pie was cooked! By this time I had read enough of the reviews that when I took the pie from the oven,I pushed the top of it gently down. Overall it didn't look bad and I still took it to our Christmas dinner. Amazingly it tasted good despite my problems with it. Next time I will slice the apples first and mix most of the caramel with them first, plus add some cinnamon.
