Old-fashioned Deep Dish Apple Pie


My husband's favorite pie is apple and he is always asking me to make one for him. By combining different types of apples you get a delicious blend of flavors and textures - some that break down when cooked and others that maintain their structure. Pre-thickening the filling guarantees a perfect slice every time! - HeritageCook
