I made 2 pies today. The first one I followed the recipe just as it was listed....no cinnamon and I poured the mixture over the lattice crust. Baked the same way and all. It was FANTASTIC!!! Wow did people love it. I was even told it was better than their grandma's, which was near impossible from what I'm told. It was HUGE anyway. The pie was not runny, the sauce was not hard to pour over the crust, the crust did not burn, it was absolutely perfect! AND, it was the first pie I had ever made! People could not believe it. Said I "nailed it" and not to change a thing. Crust, apples, recipe, cook time....CHANGE NOTHING!!! I did use my grandma's pie crust recipe.....for the first time ever. Then, since I planned on following the suggestions on the 2nd one, I had to change something...so I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and did everything else the same. I can not believe I'm going to write this.....the first one was better. The second was a little too sweet. Weird! But delicious. My son liked the 2nd one with cinnamon better, my husband said they tasted the same....and just like his mom's! Wow! But I did like the first one the best. This is a fair review of the exact recipe submitted. It is perfect!!!! And if I can make it perfect my first time making a pie....it is easy. Since my bottom crust was perfect...and the recipe did not say to cook it before the apples, so I'm not sure if that is a given or not, I'll tell you my grandma's recipe says cook on 450 for 8 minutes first. YUMMY
