The flavor is great! Despite the problems I had with this recipe, I'm giving it the 5 star rating for the flavor, and because I know how to fix my problems. Based on other reviews, I used 8 cups of water instead of 10, and decreased the cornstarch from 1 cup to one half cup. I used 3x 3lb bags of Granny Smith apples, and even with the amendments, there was a quart of juice left after using all of the apples to fill my pie shells. I have decided to use 4 bags of apples next time (each bag is about 8 cups), keep the water at 8 cups, but use the entire 1 cup of cornstarch. I filled 3x 9" pie shells plus an 8" pie shell. When this recipe says it makes 5 pies, it must mean 5x 8" pies. My husband loves the flavor, so I know I have ended my quest for the perfect pie filling recipe.
