I don't make the pies at my house, my wife does. I've only made a couple of pies in my 48 years. But she was busy today and I was craving a homemade apple pie, so I got adventurous, looked up this recipe and my 9 year daughter and I put it together. I even made my own crust and did the lattice top because my daughter thought it would be fun to do. This pie was awesomely good and very easy to make! After reading the reviews, I followed some of the the suggested changes and added a tsp of cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, and a tsp of vanilla to the sauce. After the sauce was done I added 1 1/2 tbsp of corn starch to keep it thick. Some other reviewers said the apples came out too firm, so after the recommended baking time I tested the apples with a fork. They seemed a bit firm so I left it in for about 7 minutes longer. I let it cool for a couple of hours and then served it to the family with vanilla ice cream. It was rated as "awesome" by my kids and "amazing" by my wife. I'll be making this pie again for holiday dinner this year.
