The trick to prevent a soggy pie is to cook the liquid properly down to a caramel before adding it back to the apples. After mixing and baking with apples, go for a thicker consistency where the water has mostly evaporated, and it will thin out a little.
If you want a better apple flavor in your pie, you can have an extra apple.
After baking, the butter will keep your crumble nice and crisp, don’t skimp on the ingredient. If your crumble sounds too dry and powdery, then mix in a tbsp of melted butter until you have nice little clumps. If it resulted in a big blob after mixing your crumble, then the butter may have been a little too warm. Transfer to the refrigerator for about five minutes, then use your hands or a fork to break down into crumbles.
