Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
September 20, 2004

I've made this pie three times now, and it's always made a delicious pie. However, I had an epiphany before making it this last time that greatly improved the result. I've been adding a tbs of cinnamon as was recommended by other reviewers, but made the mistake of adding the cinnamon to the sauce. The pie tasted fine, but the presentation didn't seem as impressive as people raved about. It was dark brown and unappealing. This last time, it occured to me that the cinnamon was making the pie turn dark, so instead of mixing the cinnamon into the sauce, I mixed it into the apples in a bowl before pouring the apples into the crust. The sauce I prepared as stated in the recipe. The resulting pie was picture perfect in its presentation, and cinnamon taste was just as good. So remember, if you want to add cinnamon, add it to the apples, not the sauce.
