As a kid in the kitchen with my mom I have to say PIE was my favorite meal. Yup I said MEAL. I could and still can eat a whole pie to myself! She always made sure to put away extra pies before company came because everyone was going to eat it all.
This is the famous recipe of my mom but every year (like she did) I change it up a bit but adding a little bit extra of this and taking away a little of that. I never seem to write down the revised notes. But this is the foundation of the recipe that I follow every year. One year I got a little carried away and made 14 pies and I ate them ALL! Yup I sure did with no shame :)
|This is the original recipe note is about 18 years old and I am still holding on to it!|
