This is the first pie I ever made and I was a little nervous (that's why I kind of cheated and used the ready made pie crusts), but everything came out great!! Most of the changes I made were based upon the advice of several other reviewers.
I added one teaspoon of each of the following: cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves. I didn't let the caramel sauce simmer because I was too nervous that I was going to burn it, so as soon as it boiled I turned off the heat. I removed about 1/2 a cup (to brush over the crust) then added all the sliced apples to the pan, mixed them with the caramel, then poured the whole thing into the pie crust. I baked the pie at 350 degrees the whole time and made sure it on the middle rack of the oven. Don't forget to have a cookie sheet cover with foil to catch the drippings (so glad I remembered)!And definitely have the latticework ready before you pour everything into the pie crust. I am looking forward to making this pie at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Said a prayer for Grandma Ople :) Thanks again for the recipe!
