This is, without a doubt, the best apple pie I've ever made or had! I have made this a few times in the past and again today for the first time this apple season. I have made this with the roll out store bought crust but it is at it's absolute best when made with the French Pie Crust recipe from this site using lard, yes I said lard - the same ingredient our grand and great grandmothers used for their wonderful pie crusts, and possibly even Grandma Ople too. The only deviation I made today, was using only 1/3 c. melted butter, but only b/c it was all I had and didn't want to run out for just butter...it made no difference what so ever. I also used both Granny Smith and Cortland apples and it is delicious even sans ala mode. Thank you for posting your Grandma Oples over-the-top recipe.
