My husband, not a fan of pumpkin pie, loves this pie -- and I have to say, it doesn't make me miss pumpkin. You'll definitely want to invest in an apple peeler and corer (@ $16 at Amazon), but with that and a pre-made (frozen) pie crust, the prep was about 20 minutes for me. I also don't do the lattice on top, I made a crumb topping (half cup each of flour & brown sugar, stirred together, then cut in 3T of unsalted butter). The apples mound HUGE in the crust, so pouring the sauce requires a very slow approach, but everything should fit and not run over when done. The cooked sauce gives it a sweet caramel-y flavor, and heating it up a day later and adding whipped cream is definitely the way to go.
