How Many Cups Of Apples Should I Use For One Pie?

Our staff here at Apple Pie received the following question from Lance of Plano, Texas. He asked how many cups of apples should I use for one pie.

In my experience, anything between four and eight cups will work well, it really just depends on how thick you want your filling to be. I have gone over eight cups of apples before, but that was for a deep dish apple pie. If you go below four cups of apples, then the pie has a chance of being really thin, unless you have something else to add to the filling that will thicken it up. If you haven't done so already, please be sure and check out our apple pie filling recipes section, where we tell you how to make filling separate from the crust.

Many thanks to Lance for sending in this question. Please don't forget to bookmark our website, as we would love to have you visit us again in the very near future. Cheers, and have a happy apple pie day.
