The issue in this recipe is the water and the cooking time. Mine was runny, too, like others. I have looked at a number of other apple pie recipes, and they don't contain water and actually also call for cornstarch in addition to the flour. This recipe calls for simmering the mixture, but it doesn't say for how long and that's the problem. It apparently needs to be simmered long enough to cook out the water but one wouldn't know that because it doesn't indicate. I personally would not include the water next time and would also add 2 tsp cornstarch to the flour. I added 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp clove and 1 tsp vanilla, which marry beautifully with apples and made it delicious. One other change - I added the mixture to the apples before putting the lattice on top and saved 1/4 cup of the mixture to brush the top with. This way the apples were all uniformly covered.
