Awesome pie! I love apple pies and this was no exception. I used 8 granny smith apples sliced thin, tossed in the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, a few splahes of lemon juice, left out the almonds and almond extract and opted for a couple tsp. of vanilla instead. I also left out the butter and tossed in 1/4 cup of cornstarch vs. flour to thicken up the juices. I used "Baker's Secret Pie Crust" from this site which is phenomenal! I baked this the night before (1 hour and 15 min.) to let the pie set before cutting into it - I must admit temptation almost got the better of me but I didn't want to ruin it. When we did finally cut it open boy was it incredible - the apple slices were piled nice and high, it thicken up beautifully and it went perfect with vanilla ice cream and a dollup of whipped cream - hey you have to indulge once in a while!
