I had never made an apple pie in my life, but using this recipe, I won my county's Ag Fair Apple Pie Contest!! I did use Red Delicious apples, as I am not too fond of Granny Smiths. Also, I made one batch of the sauce and mixed it in with apples before adding into bottom crust. Then, AFTER I did the lattice on top crust, I made ANOTHER batch of sauce and poured over top of pie, using as much as needed. I made this pie before the contest and took slices around to friends and family members and told them, "here, taste this and tell me what you think". Everybody raved and I was hoping they weren't just being nice. I made another pie the morning of the contest, figuring I had nothing to lose. I must say- I was really surprised when I was announced as the winner and now this will be the ONLY apple pie recipe I will ever use!
