Fabulous! It tasted yummy and was so pretty! This was my first apple pie, so I was clueless on how thick to cut the apples. I prayed and cut, and figured I would just bake it till the apples were done. I cut them about 1/2" thick. It was perfect for the hour baking time. They were not hard, but they did not turn into applesauce either. For other apple pie novices out there, 1/2'' worked for me. Make sure you have your pie about put together before you start your mixture. It will thicken too much if you wait too long to pour it on. I would not simmer it any longer than 5 minutes or so. Also, I would highly recommend pouring the sugar and butter mixture into a measuring cup or something that you can pour out of easily. This will give you more control when you pour it into the pie. I poured it into the holes, and then used a pastry brush to make sure it was all over the crust as well. If it is a little thick, don't worry. It all comes together in the oven. Don't be afraid of the cooking time in the oven. The time stated was perfect, and the pie did not have a burnt appearance at all. Good luck!
