I made this and family liked it. I had to make it again yesterday...very simple. We went apple picking last week. They didn't have Granny Smith, but I think the ones that I used might have been Jonagold. We get great apples in NJ. Pillsbury refrigerated crusts 2 About 6 to 8 apples 1 cup of granulated sugar 3 tbsp of flour 1 tbsp of cinnamon 1/2 tbsp of cardamom 1 tbsp of lemon 1 tsp of vanilla extract 1/2 stick of butter cut up into small pieces dash of salt Cook the first pie shell to directions on pkg. Let cool. Peel apples and cut into thin slices add lemon and vanilla to apples mix dry ingredients together and then mix with apples. Pour mixture into cooled pie shell. lay butter pats on top evenly spread. Add 2nd pie shell on top and cut several small slits Cook at 400 for 35 to 40 minutes.
