As seen on THE CHEW:
However, I modified the ingredients according to our tastes. I don't cook with any alcoholic beverages, I cut the sugar and I added some tapioca because that is my preferred thickening for apple pie. I cheated on the crust just because I had so much going on that I didn't want to make and roll out my own. I bought a double pack of deep dish shells. I used the second shell for the top crust. It's handy and easy when pressed for time.
I did peel the apples at my husband's request. Also, as a WONDERFUL TIME SAVER, I sliced the apples in my Cuisinart food processor. This pie contained a 5 # bag of apples, minus the one my husband ate the day before.... Quick as a wink, I had wonderfully uniform, thinly sliced apples... I highly recommend this method of slicing apples!
This pie was WONDERFUL and will certainly be the new Thanksgiving tradition in this house.
