The dilemma that is Apple Pie

Hello all!

There's a cold breeze in the air, the leaves are turning yellow and it's pitch black by 6PM already... All signs lead to one thing: it's that time of the year for Apple Pie! As much as I love it, as much as I dread it as it can get terribly boring.
I've tried variations in the past such as combining with other fruits, adding exciting spices, using a cheddar-spiked crust, using different bases (puff, phyllo, short crust etc).
Maybe my favourite experiment of all however was a Apple-Nougat Pie (which was fab) but am currently in total lack of inspiration right now.

How do you make your Apple Pies more exciting? Curious to know!
