i have made this a number of times, and it is delicious every time. it's an amazing pie, but where are the spices? i added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp allspice to the sugar mixture. if you don't have granny smith apples, honeycrisp apples also make a delicious pie - however, if you're using a sweeter apple than granny smith, i recommend adding a bit of lemon juice to help counter out all the sweetness. ruth's grandma's pie crust, also on this site, is a wonderful crust to use for this recipe - you can even add a bit of cinnamon and extra sugar to the pie crust to really tailor it to an apple pie. i prefer to pour the sugar mixture over the apples before i put the top crust on, only because spilling it on the crust makes the crust really dark in places and i like to make my pies look pretty. if you have an ice cream maker, the honey vanilla ice cream on this site is a perfect accompaniment.
