There was a split decision on this in my house: whether it was better than the usual, plain, old fashioned apple pie. Since I do the cooking and reviewing, it's getting my rating of five stars. I loved this; the flavor is like carmel apples in a pie crust, only much more subtle and not as sweet. As other reviewers recommended, I put in quite a bit of cinnamon as well as nutmeg and ground cloves. I also used about a tablespoon more flour and a tablespoon less water than called for in the syrup ... I think that was a mistake because my syrup was too thick and not pourable. I would recommend either adding more flour or using less water, but not both. I first tossed the sliced apples with a little flour and the spices to coat them. Then placed half in the crust and spooned the syrup over. Then I placed the rest of the apples on top and spooned most of the rest of the syrup over that. Finally, I spooned the last of the syrup on top of the lattice crust. The consistency was perfect, it sliced beautifully with no running. Usually I eat only one slice of pie, but I ate half of this pie in one day!
