This is an old family favorite. The best apple pie we have ever had. I hope it becomes one of your favorites.

Oops! I didn't follow directions correctly, and it still turned out great. Instead of pouring the sauce over the outer crust, I let the slurry cool a bit and stirred it into the cut up apples. That will teach me not to read directions first! Oh well--I just put a lattice top crust on, giving it an egg-white wash with a sprinkling of sugar and baked as directed. A beautiful looking pie...inside and out. Its taste is slightly different than a typical apple pie--I attribute that to half brown/half white sugar and 1/2 C butter. A nice combination and a little bit different than usual--thanks Nimz.
