This pie reminds me of my Great Aunt Lola's when I was little. It still isn't as good as hers, but it's as close as I can come.

This is an amazing apple pie!! I've been looking for 1 to pass the test of my husband's aunt's red hot pie he remembers as a child! The search is over!! He said this 1 is good if not better. Used a refrigerated walmart brand roll-out pie crust & followed the rest of the recipe exactly! Turned out just perfect! Thanx 4 the post!
