Apples in Pie Too Mushy

The Granny Smith apples in my pie turn to applesauce if the pie bakes long enough to get the crust golden brown. Help!

Try slicing the apples thicker.

FUJI Apples don't get mushy. They keep their shape and are great in pies. You can either use them alone or mix them with other apples that you have.

Preheat the oven up to 425°, bake at 425° for 15 minutes, then turn oven down to 350° for the remainder of time (about 30 to 45 min.) That should brown the crust without making the apples mushy.

I agree with the feedback to try slicing the apples thicker, but also I'm wondering about your crust recipe. If it has the right amount of fat, butter, etc., it should brown, also, you could add a little bit of sugar, maybe 1 tablespoon to the flour mixture. I used to bake a lot of apple pies for our restaurant, and found the best flavored pies are made from at least two, preferably three different varieties of apples in the pie.
