    Preheat oven to 350F. Combine apple juice, sugar, and butter in a bowl. Add apples and cornstarch.

    Gala apples are eating not cooking apples, they make a nice pie, a bit softer filling, just make it as you would a regular pie, adding a few more as they tend to breakdown, when I make pie strudel or crisp, I use 4 apples, a MacIntosh, Granny Smith, a Gala or Fuji, if in season a Spy, but a Russet or Golden Delicious is fine to, a combination of apples give a more complex flavour, but a Gala pie is nice as well, a bit extra sugar to with the cinnamon, I use corn starch to bind my fillings.
