Mightymet, there was a link in the first post for this stuff, and it made about 50 gallons of apple pie flavored hooch.

So if you're not in the bar business, you might try:
1 qt. apple juice
1 qt apple jack
1 cinnamon stick
Combine & heat to about 100 degrees, then add:
1/4 C sugar
1/4 C palm sugar (whatever that is, I'd use plain old white cane sugar.)
Add a pinch of cinnamon powder & cook & stir this until it gets to 225 degrees.
Take it off the heat and let it cool back to about 100 degrees. (Won't burn your finger, but still hot.) Add 1/4C Vodka and 1/4C Everclear. (recipe called for moonshine, but again, whatever works.) I'd probably just use Vodka or even some 151 Rum, and I probably wouldn't use enough to equal a half cup total. Some will want more, some less.

Bottle it up and enjoy as needed.

I'd also be careful about the type of apple juice used. Store-bought clear apple juice won't be as "apple pie" tasting as that brown, unfiltered & thick stuff you can sometimes find in the autumn.
