I was reading a thread about great Apple Pie. I admit Apple Pie is not my favorite pie, but would love to have the ultimate Apple Pie recipe.

*Your* secret to great apple pie?

So, what is it?

I know that apple pie — and how to make — is well discussed all over the internet.

But how about sharing your secret tips and tricks to making apple pie special, unique, or just that itty-bitty bit better than the other guy’s.

Do you use a combo of different apples for the filling?

Add butter to the apples? Maybe sour cream or buttermilk?


Special spice additions, e.g. star anise or cardamom for example?

Anyway, curious as to your special techniques or secrets to great apple pie.

Hope someone out there has their grandma’s secret recipe their willing to share 🙂
