It happens every time.
I roll out a nice rich crust, I put the effort into peeling and slicing apples, I spice it all up nicely, and stick it in the oven.
My beautiful, good-smelling pie cools and is ready to cut. I make the first slice.
Juice runs everywhere. My top crust crumbles as I lift the slice onto a plate. The soggy bottom crust is still stuck to the bottom of the pie plate.
I've tried adding more flour. I've tried using different apple varieties. I've tried a couple of differnt types of pie plates. I can't seem to solve the runny pie problem. I can't create a pie that holds together even slightly.
What am I doing wrong? What can I do to remedy the situation?
