Apple Pie Tips :
What are the best apples to use in pies?
In the Taste of Home Test Kitchen, we prefer using Granny Smith for pies because of its tart flavor and ability to hold its shape. If you want something with a little more sweetness, we recommend using Braeburn, Golden Delicious or Jonagold.

How many apples are in 6 cups?
Typically, 1 medium apple yields 1-1/3 cups sliced. For 6 cups of sliced apples, you will need about 5 medium apples. Plus, you'll have a little left over for a snack or to use in any of these apple recipes!
How do you keep the bottom of a pie from getting soggy?
To avoid a pie bottom from getting soggy, allow the bottom crust to heat more rapidly than the rest of the pie. To do this, place a baking sheet in the oven while preheating and then bake your pie on the pan.
Is it better to bake a pie in glass or metal?
Both metal and glass pie plates work well for baking double-crust pies. But for single-crust pies that are pre-baked, a metal plate is preferred because it heats quicker and ensures a crisp crust. Follow our other pie baking tips in our ultimate pie baking guide!
How do I keep my pie filling from being watery?
To prevent your pie from getting watery, make sure to have your pie crust ready before mixing the filling. The longer the filling sits before baking, the more moisture it will release. Follow these best-kept pie crust secrets so your crust can hold your pie filling nice and strong!
