I have had Grandma Ople's apple pie in my recipe box for quite a while, but had never tried it. I wanted to take it to a Thanksgiving carry-in at work and decided to make one for a trial run. I read a lot of reviews, but with the exception of mixing some of the sauce with the apples first, and using the apples I had on hand, (Gala and Jonathan), I made it exactly as written. If Grandma Ople didn't feel the need for extra spices, doggone it--neither do I!!! It was really superb, carry-in worthy--no doubt. I am a pie baker and own several pie pans--none of which were at my house. They were borrowed or left at someone's house with pie in them, and I found myself at home at 2:00 in the morning with nothing to bake this pie in but a flimsy aluminum pan that I had saved from a store-bought pie. It turned out great! Can't wait to try this in a proper pan. I do think that I will bake on 350 for the whole time as I would normally do. Mt pie had a few little burnt spots using the 425/350 method. Also, if you are new to pie-baking, it is a good idea to place some strips of aluminum foil loosely around the edges of the crust for 10-15 minutes of baking time to prevent burning. Wonderful recipe--thanks for sharing!
