This never-fail pie is perfect for the holidays.
In a large, heavy saucepan, combine all ingredients except vanilla and butter, and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and, stirring frequently, gently boil the mixture for 10 to 15 minutes, until it thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour filling into an unbaked, pastry-lined 9-inch pie shell, and dot with butter.
Make a lattice top with the remaining pastry dough, and crimp edges.
Bake at 450°F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake 35 minutes more or until golden brown.

Note: A lattice top is highly recommended for this pie. It needs a lot of venting during the
baking process so it won't be too juicy.
