Sadly, I did not inheret the baking gene, so when I was asked to bring apple pie to Thanksgiving this year I almost panicked. Luckily, AllRecipes had my back and I found Grandma Opel's Apple Pie recipe. The reviews won me over, so I made a test pie - including the lattice top (first time for me)! It came out pretty good, although the inside was slightly runny. It probably wouldn't have been if I'd used all 8 apples, but I couldn't fit them all in my pie. With one pie under my belt (literally), I baked the pie again yesterday for today's Thanksgiving dinner. This time, I made sure to use all the apples - which made a mile-high mound. I also added 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and a few shakes of apple pie spice. I was hoping a nice overnight rest in the refrigerator will help the filling set and not be soupy. I'll let you know how pie #2 compares after we devour it today. Thanks for a great recipe!
