This recipe is excellent! We had it "a la mode" and after one bite, my husband ate his ice cream first so he could just savor the pie. I didn't have Granny Smith apples on hand, so I used Honey Crisp - I didn't use 8 either, just enough to fill the pie tin, since they don't bake down much. Otherwise, besides a dash of cinnamon, I followed the recipe almost exactly. I poured about 3/4 of the syrup on the apples and tossed before adding them to the pie tin. I then put the lattice on, and poured the remaining syrup over the top as the recipe calls for. I did have to bake it about 20 minutes longer than the recipe called for, because Honey Crisp apples are so crisp, that it takes them longer to soften. The nice thing with a lattice crust, is you can check your apples to make sure they are fork tender. This one is going into my hand-written recipe box!
