I prefer my apples to be cooked through, but not applesauce. I think you would find that the type of apple you use will make a difference. I use a combo of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious in mine, and they hold their shape and are cooked through.

Good Luck

Angelique, I use all Granny Smiths in my apple pies, and they hold up pretty well. Also, if you're looking for a stiffer pie as well (that keeps it's shape), you may want to stir in more flour to the apples/sugar/lemon juice mix.

Cut your apples a little bit thicker, too. They won't break down as much, so they'll still be a bit firm/tender.

I use at least two kinds of apples, usually Granny Smith or McIntosh.
