I'm not an experienced pie maker, but I made Grandma Ople's pie, using Pie Crust IV by Jan Bittner, for Thanksgiving, and it turned out great! I read a few reviews and decided to try adding some of the sauce to the apples before putting the lattice on top, and my intention was to pour the remaining sauce over the lattice… but by the time I got the lattice in place, the sauce had hardened up into a thick goo (even though I kept it hot) and I had to spread it on instead of pouring. When I baked the pie, that goo got very hard and sort of caramelized. It didn't look as pretty as I had hoped, but it still tasted as good as advertised, and that crunchy-hard-caramel on top was very good. However, I will probably put all of the sauce in with the apples, brush the crust with a little butter and sprinkle a little sugar on top prior to baking to make a prettier pie next time.
