I'm not a fan of apple pie and so I have never made one, but my hubby wanted one for his b-day instead of cake. My pie plate is 9.5" so I was able to use up all of the 10 apples that I had (4 granny smith, 5 mcintosh, 1 fugi). The next time I make this pie, I will go with more granny smiths. I feel like they held up better after baking. I read all the reviews before trying and this is what I ended up doing: brushed the bottom crust whit egg white before filling (to prevent sogginess), doubled the spices, used 3 tbsp flour/3tbsp cornstarch & added a splash of vanilla to the apples. After 20 minutes of baking, I brushed the top crust with egg white and sprinkled with granulated sugar. Everyone who tried the pie loved it :)
