I used Granny Smith apples, but you could also use Golden Delicious. Both are tart, so you might want to mix with a sweeter Gala or Rome apple.
Yes, I do still use my Apple Peeler, Corer, Slicer to get perfectly sliced apples! Mine is actually an old Pampered Chef version, but this one looks much nicer without having to clamp it down to the counter top.
I did not use all of the dough for my two pies, but I didn’t want to come up short. Bake additional shapes to top with jam or wrap and freeze for later.
