My wife and I make apple pie, but we use 1/2 tart and 1/2 sweet apples with less sugar, and a lot more cinnamon.

soaking the apples helps the cooking process and eliminates the crunchiness of the apples. If you don't soak them, they stay crunchy. I know, I eliminated that step due to being able to slice them up so fast that they didn't turn brown. And since then every pie was crunchy. :-/ So back to soaking!
