Is it possible the bottom crust had cracks because if it did it's possible some of the sweet juice from the apples seeped under the crust, when cooled it would cause the crust to stick. Did the entire bottom crust stick or just in area's?

The bottom stuck in most parts. Especially edge

I believe I know the recipe, it's the one with vodka I think and is a terrific recipe. I have had this happen from time to time when filling seeps under the crust through cracks and sticks to the pie plate, Other than that I am stumped, don't know why the pie crust would stick to the pan, there is sufficient fat in the recipe so that it shouldn't.

I'm guessing sdebrango has figured out your problem. That's the only reason I can think of for the crust to stick to the pan.

Did you grease the pie pan first before baking?

Perhaps not enough!

Sorry if it sounded like a stupid question. But similar to a doctor doing an initial profile, it helps to ask the basic questions!
