I don't even LIKE Apple pie, and I LOVED this!!! I don't know what makes this so amazing, but it's just perfect and received many compliments (including my friend who is a complete health nut and never eats pie) when I made it for Thanksgiving. It's light and tender and the crust is flaky...just all around amazing. Depending on how deep your pie dish it, I would recommend upping the apples to 8 cups and increasing the corresponding ingredients accordingly. Also, pouring excess liquid out of the mixture once the apples have been evenly coated will prevent sogginess, as will spooning the apples in with a slotted spoon. I did a lattice top and brushed it with egg wash and the color turned out nicely. I will use this recipe even without the Pillsbury crust, although the crust is so perfect if I'm in a hurry I can just use the Pillsbury crust. This recipe is a winner for sure!
