If you are worried about your pastry becoming mushy on the bottom, you may partially bake it. Do yourself a favour and buy puff pastry instead of making it from scratch. Use apples with a good bite, such Granny Smiths, Pink Ladies, or Galas. If you want to avoid mushy results, don’t use red or Golden Delicious apples. If you like, you may omit the raisins. A large dollop of ice cream or heavy cream is the perfect accompaniment to warm apple pie.
