WOW! This is my first apple pie from scratch and let me say that its sooo easy! And cheap! Why buy store bought. Ok I did "some" obvious alterations after reading at least a hundred reviews. I made my "Basic Flaky Pie Crust" from this site (awesome btw) ahead of time. Had it all done for when my sauce was ready. I doubled my sauce because the I saw that it was too little. I used margarine instead of Butter because thats what I had and it was fine. I added 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, a tablespoon of mexican vanilla and a pinch of all spice to my sauce. I didnt have any nutmeg on hand or else I would've added that too. Baking time: I read that some peoples apples were still a little hard...what I did, instead of altering the baking time, I just cut my apples a little thinner and it came out fine. I didnt do the lattice pie top, I didnt want to mess it up since it was my first time. A full top works fine, just make sure to brush it with a beaten egg. Also, This pie should not be eaten right away! Wait till the next day or refrigerate for at least 6 hours. I couldnt wait and after it being cooled for just 2 hours, it was still very watery. By morning it was PERRFECT! Overall, I made this at night and when I woke up for breakfast it was half gone all ready...By noon it was TOTALLY GONE! Excellent Pie!
