I basically went by the recipe. However, I used more granny smith apples, less sugar, only 1 tsp. cinnamon, used cornstarch instead of flour and only used about 1 tbsp. butter. After coating sliced apples with sugar mixture I let sit for 10 minutes or so while I made the pastry crust. Scope out apples from bowl and press into pie shell, be sure not to get any of the liquid at the bottom of the bowl. ** I don't like an overpowering taste of cinnamon so I used less. Only used a few butter slices on top of apples before placing top crust. Brushed top of crust with a light coat of melted butter then sprinkled sugar, cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice mixture on it. Baked at 400 for 10 minutes then reduced to 325 for another 45 - 50 minutes. The last 10 minutes I placed a foil tent over pie. It turned out beautiful and was so delicious, my kids loved it. I will be keeping this recipe with the changes though.
