I made this pie twice in 2 days. I made the first one EXACTLY following the recipe, except that I used honey instead of white/brown sugar (a little less than 1 cup). It came out a little odd looking. The syrup which was added on top looked really hard after baking. So, I decided to try the pie before company came, fearing it would be awful. It was actually REALLY good, so I was mad at myself for cutting into it early.
Then I made it a second time. This time I used the regular sugar and put 3/4 of the syrup inside the apples, like people have suggested. This pie came out WORSE than the first one. Although a lot of people suggest mixing the syrup w/the apples, I think it completely takes away from the pie, and I would never mix the syrup again. When you add the syrup to just the top, the inside stays just a little tart and juicy. When you add the syrup inside the whole pie is just too sweet and yucky! The thick layer of syrup on top gives a caramel flavored crust, its to die for! DO NOT ADD SYRUP TO THE APPLES!!!
Also, use a little less than 1 cup honey instead of the sugar, SOOOOO much tastier!!
Oh yes, you have to add cinnamon (2 tsp), that's a must!
