This was my first attempt at baking an apple pie. The directions were very simple to follow. However, after reading other reviews I adjusted some of the ingredients. I added 1tsp of cinnamon, 1/2tsp of nutmeg and 1tbsp of vanilla. I deleted 1tbsp of water to make up for the vanilla. I also used Pillsbury prepared deep dish pie shells. They seemed to be too small for 8 granny smith apples and ended up using only 6 medium granny's. I sprinkled the cut apples with some more cinnamon and then mixed the caramel filling with the apples before putting into the crust. I just made some vent holes in the top crust and then brushed the top with some left over sauce. I reduced the oven to 375 and decreased the cooking time to 1 hour and 15 minutes. This was still too long. The pie looked wonderful when finished and we didn't wait for it to cool before diving in. BUT, it was overcooked and the apples were pretty much mush. All in all a great experience ... I will try again and play with the cooking time ... will update you all after I perfect it :-)
