Apple pie filling is dry

In the process of baking my apple pie, and the filling is quite dry and it’s taking longer than expected to cook it. I covered the pie with foil but when I checked on it at 45 min, it’s fairly raw and dry. Thank you in advance!!

An apple pie that size will take an hour to bake at 400- could your oven be cool? If the apples were lacking moisture they'd look like great grampaw and you'd probably have noticed- probably just more time. Foil should be unnecessary unless you need it to keep the rim from overbaking- it would probably tend to steam the crust, not what you want.

Yes I think Eric is right - your apples probably won't start releasing more water until they cook a bit more. But if it's still dry when you're ready to serve and you have the ingredients handy, serve it with some whipped cream or maybe even a caramel sauce.
