This French apple pie is full of apples. No sinking because you partially precook the apples to prevent shrinkage during baking. It is topped with a sweet crumble. My family's favorite.

  • Prepare pie: Combine apples, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger in a saucepan. Dissolve cornstarch in apple juice and add to apples. Heat over medium heat until juice thickens and is translucent and apples are slightly softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Do not overcook.

  • Spoon apples into the pie crust using a slotted spoon (heap those apples in). Add juices until pie dish is full, but not overflowing, so it won't spill over.

  • Mix flour and sugar for topping together in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender until combined. Spread over filling. Do not pack in.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and browned and apples are tender, about 30 minutes. Let set and cool completely before serving.
