Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
August 27, 2002

A++ Decadently Delicious! Ive tried many recipes from this site, all of them pleasing. But this is the first time I've ever been so inspired by one to write a review! You wont find a better recipe for apple pie. I read every review for people's advice before starting, and did make a few adjustments to the original. Some mentioned granny smith apples were too tart. Stick with the recipe on that one. I added a teaspoon of cinnamon, a good dash of nutmeg and a tablespoon of vanilla to the syrup prior to simmering (compensate for adding the vanilla by omiting a tablespoon of that 1/4 cup of water). Next, definately mix the syrup with the apples rather than trying to pour into the pie (save enough to glaze top crust). Do use a 9" glass pie pan to avoid spillage. Use the middle shelf in the oven (so top crust doesnt brown too fast). And last but not least, I did the lattice top crust, and it turned out picture perfect, but im convinced that using a complete top crust with designer slits cut into it would turn out just as beautifully. Whatever you decide to do with the top crust, just remember the syrup you saved to glaze the top with needs to still be HOT or it will thicken up on you, so have your plan together and move quickly. In all, this recipe is amazing. I will make this for anyone I am trying to impress! Three cheers for Grandma Opal and family.
