I made the following modifications as suggested by others: I used half granny smith & half fuji apples (although i'll use all one or the other next time); added 1 TBSP of Tapioca to the existing 2 TBSP of flour (this worked brilliantly -- the pie wasn't runny at all and unlike other reviewers, i didn't drain any of the juices); added 2 TBSP of brown sugar to the existing 2/3 cup of white sugar. I brushed the pie crust (set in a glass pie dish) /w egg whites and pre-baked for 10 mins or so at 400 degrees. I also pre-baked the fruit filling in a glass casserole dish for 15 mins at 400 degrees prior to dumping it into the pie crust (to address the crunchy apple issue mentioned by others). The pie turned out excellent. However, I wasn't "blown away" by this pie. In fact, I was annoyed at all the modifications necessary to make the end result "perfect." It was a lot of work for a pie that is slightly above average. It is also missing something, but I can't put my finger on what... It has a bland flavor. It needs a bit more "zing", perhaps the reviewer that suggested adding some cranberries was on to something. Overall, I might make this again, but only if I'm extremely motivated. There are easier and better recipes available.
