This looks like a wonderful pie, I will give it a try come Thanksgiving as I am the cook in the house. I put up apples, peaches, and pumpkins in the fall for my holiday pies...We grow most of our own food...Thanks

Not a pie fan, but I love apple spice cake. Things our mothers make are often the best. Good share.
