Raw apples apples will stay firmer IMO. I would freeze it baked.

Actually different varieties of apples cook differently. If you're not going to cook them, then thinly slicing might be better than chunks of apples.

Couldn't get Ballarat yesterday so have got Granny Smiths.Will toss with a bit of cinnamon and custard powder before putting in the pastry case.
