Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
Update: It's runny and tastes a bit bland. I would add cinnamon or cardamon to this. I used Gala apples because I dislike Granny Smith. Maybe that's why the pie came out runny? I'll be flouring them next time to see if that helps. I will try this recipe again because it didn't taste horrible, it just needs some umph and to thicken up.***
I haven't actually tasted this yet, but I'm leaving a tentative review now for the process. I had to make two batches of this because the first batch turned into a giant ball of sticky gunk that shot hot liquid butter from every orifice after trying to reincorporate the butter and sugar. What went wrong? I think boiling the mixture caused the sugar to harden and separate from the butter. After lots of stirring, and burning my hand, the sugar took on a thick, almost putty-like consistency that swum in a pool of butter. I tried pouring it on to my pie anyway, and it just sat on top, ruining my lattice. Oh well, I should've known better. The next batch I did not let boil, only simmer, and that seemed to work fine. I'm waiting now for the pie to cool before I try it and will update with the results.
