I baked this yesterday for Thanksgiving, and I don't know what happened, but the pie came out incredibly tart, even though I followed the directions exactly. I used 4 Granny Smith apples, 2 Yellow Delicious apples, and 2 Gala apples. I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the syrup, then mixed 3/4's of it with the apples, using the rest to pour over the lattice crust. Everybody loved the crust, but didn't flip over the filling. After tasting it myself, I agreed. The filling was tender and perfectly cooked, but way too tart, as if there wasn't enough syrup. I'm going to try it one more time, since it's gotten so many rave reviews, but this time maybe I'll double the syrup, or change the mix/ratio of apples. By the way, the pie was beautiful when it came out of the oven, but as it cooled, the apples sunk and the lattice crust stayed up, like a cage, which has never happened with any lattice pie I've ever made. Obviously, I botched everything up on this one! LOL
