I saw this demonstrated in a YouTube video, prepared by Chef John of foodwishes.com. It sounded so good, so I jotted down the ingredients and instructions. I made it immediately, and it was fabulous. It's about the only apple pie I make any longer, and I thought others would like to make it, too. Use whatever apples you like (Chef John prepared his pie using Gala apples, but I prefer Granny Smith apples). I also peel my apples, but chef John sliced his apples with the peels intact.
