I definitely give this recipe five stars. It turned out delicious. I added a splash of orange juice to the mix. It turned out wonderfully. The only thing I might change would be to peel the apples first. It simply never occurred to me. We just got a little more fiber with our pie, I guess.

Directions See How It's Made
- Combine apples, brown sugar, water and lemon juice in a pot.
- Cover and cook over medium heat about five minutes or until the apples are just tender.
- Mix flour, granulated sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt and stir into apple mixture.
- Cook, stirring constantly until the syrup thickens- about 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and butter.
- Heat oven to 425 degrees.
- Prepare pastry.
- Turn the apple mixture into the pastry-lined pie pan.
- Cover with top crust with slits in it; seal and flute.
