EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Tart apples, such as Granny Smith, McIntosh or Haralson, make the most flavorful pies. Eating apples, like Red Delicious, do not cook down as much during baking.

Two 21-ounce cans of apple pie filling can be substituted for the fresh apple filling. Toasted, chopped walnuts may be substituted for the pecans.
