I haven't actually tasted this pie but I have made it twice, both times using the sweet shorty pastry crust on this web site. The first time I made this pie I followed the directions except I used salted butter, I added 1 t of cinnamon and 1 T of vanilla. I forgot to omit 1 T of water from mixture. I also soaked the apples in water while I was cutting them and drained them before putting them in the pie. I poured the mixture on the apples and covered with the crust and sliced vents on the top. I also brushed part of the topping on the top crust. It was beautiful! When we cut into the pie it was VERY runny and the apples were not cooked all the way. The second time I made the pie I did not soak the apples in water and only added 1 T of water instead of 1/4 cup. I also baked in 20 minutes longer at 350 than the recipe states. The pie turned out beautiful and the pie did not survie 24 hours before it was all eaten. I will make this pie again!
