Filled with three different varieties of apples, this apple pie has next-level texture and flavor. A simple mix of butter, brown sugar, flour, and oats creates a topping with sublime texture and crunch.
The secret to next-level filling is combining different apple varieties. The ideal mix ranges in taste from sweet to tart to good, old-fashioned apple flavor, and includes some firm ones that hold their shape, so you don’t wind up with pie full of applesauce.
Try one of these formulas for the filling in this pie:
1 1/2 pounds Braeburn (sweet-tangy and firm) + 1 1/2 pounds Granny Smith (tart) + 1/2 pound McIntosh (classic apple flavor)
1 1/2 pounds Golden Delicious (sweet-tangy and firm) + 1 1/2 pounds Granny Smith (tart) + 1/2 pound Macoun (classic apple flavor)
