Stop Looking! This Is It! I will never buy another store made pie again. Believe all the wonderful things you have read about this pie, it is the BEST apple pie I have ever eaten. It was simple to make, no fancy ingredients required. It's honestly a no fuss, no mess recipe. After reading the reviews, I did make a couple minor adjustments, 1.) I used 6 large apples (3 granny smith & 3 red delicious) because 8 was too many. I didn't use all Granny Smith because I was afraid it would be too tart (personal preference). 2.) I added 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 tsp. vanilla to the sauce (again, personal preference). 3.) I poured the sauce over the apples, then put the top crust on. I left out a couple tablespoons of the sauce, added a teaspoon of water to it, and brushed it on top of the crust. 4.) Pre-heated the oven at 425* but baked the pie at 350* for 1 hour. I turned off the oven and left the pie in there for another 15 mins just to make sure the apples were cooked all the way. The crust never burned and the pie never boiled over. Speaking of crust, I used the Basic Flaky Crust recipe from this site, also very easy to make and easy to handle. I egg washed the bottom crust and baked it for about 7 mins before I added the apples just to make sure I didn't end up with raw crust. Thanks for the delicious recipe Grandma Ople!
