This is such a yummy pie. The boys and I enjoy going to an apple orchard south of town to pick our apples, and sometimes, instead of a lattice crust, they will use leaf and also apple shaped tiny cookie cutters to cut out shapes to place on the top of the pie. (This is great served warm with vanilla ice cream!)
