This filling for an apple Pie, Crisp or Cobbler Has to be My all Time Favorite filling recipe . I pile, & mound My apples really high in a Pie when I am making one. I have old 12" pie pans that are Not Easy to Find. I found them in the early 70's and I have a hard time Keeping hands off them, they just want to dissapear, Because when you get a slice of this pie you know You have had a slice of Pie. non of this sliver of an 8" pie for me, if I can help it. Hope you'll try it. Note: If Baking a pie with this filling I bake about 45-50 Min, till crust is golden in color. Same with the Crisps, or cobblers
