*Your* secret to great apple pie?

So, what is it?

I know that apple pie -- and how to make -- is well discussed on these boards and 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?

Macerate?

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

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