    6. Just out of curiosity what element do the breadcrumbs bring? I've made many apple pies, but I don't think I've ever recalled breadcrumbs in it. Not opposed to trying it but was just wondering.

      1. Hello !!Thank you for visiting kurryleaves!!
        Yeah!!The breadcrumbs just act as a thickening agent.Some variety apples need to have some of the juice cooked out of them,otherwise they will leave out excess moisture during baking.Most of the recipes call for thickening agents like,all purpose flour,cornstarch or tapioca flour.Breadcrumbs will thicken the liquid quickly as they have already been cooked.Therefore you just have to cook the filling (apple mixture) for few minutes.
        Again the use of thickening agent is completely optional and depends upon,the variety of apple used and also how you like your pie filling to be,i.e a bit loose or thick and firm like the one above.
        Happy Cooking!!
