This is EVERYTHING that all the reviews rave about!! Truly the best apple pie that I've ever had- my husband who usually skips the sweets LOVES this pie and actually asks for it!! I've served it several times and it is ALWAYS a total hit!!! It's great warm from the oven with or without some vanilla bean ice cream or heated up for breakfast (HEY! it's got apples in it...;) haha) even in the microwave! I did what others mentioned however and after reading what seemed like hundreds of reviews, I adapted the recipe and used all the helpful tips of those who went before me to refine this to perfection! Thanks to all who helped me get my own version of this awesome pie! I do add 1 Tbsp Cinnamon, 1 tsp Allspice, 1tsp Nutmeg along with a heaping Tbsp Madagascar Vanilla Paste to the buttery syrup after it's boiling along with a tiny pinch of salt unless I've used salted butter. Also, I also pour approx. half of the mixture directly over the apples then cover with the lattice and pour the rest over that and into the holes- use a pan with a lip for pouring! I brush any exposed pastry with milk and then sprinkle that with white sugar! :) Last tip... I use a long handled tsp to scoop up the runny drippings (DEF. use a foil lined pan under this as it WILL be runny!!) and pour them back over the pie when done or near done- like basting the pie! haha Let it sit long enough to not have liquid spilling everywhere when cut!! ENJOY! :-) Thank you Grandma Ople and Rebecca for sharing!
