Fourth of July Apple Pie V

Happy Apple Pie day, friends!  Making an apple pie on the fourth of july is maybe my only "tradition," and I think I've made this pie more times than I've ever made any other dessert.  I don't even like apple pie!

This year I forgot to adjust for the fact that I have a convection oven now. :(  So the crust got a little crispy before the apples got all the way cooked through as much as I would have liked.  It still got ALL eaten at the bbq I went to though.  One person ate three slices, AND scraped the pie plate afterwards!  Numerous testimonials were offered but I forgot them already.  

On the bright side, this year I remembered to do everything I had noted to myself to do to the base pie recipe in the previous 4 years, because I actually typed up a NEW recipe!  This was part of my long weekend recipe organizing bonanza.  So now I shouldn't have to review several years worth of pie baking notes the next time I have to bake this pie although, if I do check back here next year, I should remember:

--YOU HAVE A CONVECTION OVEN.  Lower the first baking temp to 400, and definitely don't bake for more than 30 minutes in the second stage.
--Probably I also don't want to pour quite so much caramel over the crust either.  This year I finally remembered to actually double the caramel (last year I doubled the butter but not the sugar), so I think I poured too much on the top of the crust, which contributed to the over-browning. I should have poured a higher proportion of it into the apples.

Anyway, regardless of my convection oven tomfoolery, and the fact that I burned the crap out of my tongue by stupidly dunking an apple in the caramel about 2 seconds after it stopped boiling, the pie was in fact all consumed.  Fifth Annual Pie Success!
