i made this yesterday to share with 4 of my friends. It was very easy. I did add 2-3 teasp. of cinnamon, 1/2 teasp fresh nutmeg, 1 teasp. vanilla extract to the sauce once it was simmering. I also sprinkled sliced/peeled granny smiths with cinnamon and a little sugar due to review comments on tartness, however, it probably didn't need it. I half filled the shell with the apple slices, poured about half of the filling over them, topped it with the remaining applies and two thirds of the remaining sauce. I lastly poured remaining third over lattice top. As some recommended I used the French Pastry Pie Crust recipe from this site. That was as much a hit as the filling. I baked as originally instructed and did not have soggy crust but remembered to place on parchment paper lined edged cookie sheet and put on lowest oven rack (electric oven). For those with issues of burning, check if oven is heating properly using an inexpensive oven thermometer. Wal-Mart carries them. I must say the video is very helpful for those not sure of preparing sauce. Another tip, make your dough ahead and have bottom in shell (refrigerate until ready to use). I made sauce last and kept pan on heating element (after turning burner off) to keep it from solidifying until ready to pour. I was so proud of results I emailed a pic to my daughter in California - apple's her favorite! Now my mother wants to try making it and she always says she just can't make a good apple pie. TRY IT!
