I can't remember where I found this recipe years ago but I thought it was brilliant! I have a hard time getting my regular apple pie filling cooked through without over browning the crust. This solves that problem beautifully. When the filling is done it will resemble canned apple pie filling with a much better flavor. -Sarah

5 cups peeled and thinly sliced apples
