Best apples for apple pie – Make sure you choose a firm variety so that it will hold its shape when cooked. Then choose a mix of sweet and tart for the best flavor profile. Here are some of my favorites:
Sweet – Royal Gala, Ambrosia, Honey Crisp, and Golden Delicious
Tart – Idared, Red Prince, Jonagold, and Mutsu (aka Crispin)
Working with this pie crust – The texture of this pastry dough is different from most other pie crusts in that it’s a bit fragile and crumbly. However, that delicate texture is what makes this pie crust so tender and flaky, so it’s well worth it. When handling this pie crust, it might crack or break, but not to worry, just pinch and seal and patch it up as if you’re playing with Playdoh. This pie crust is very forgiving and easy to work with in that sense.
