Favorite recipes from Grandma and other submitters using some of Grandpa's favorite apple varieties.
Grandma used to bake this for Thanksgiving every year because Grandpa and the family liked it so well. It was the perfect pie to follow a big turkey dinner. Granny Smith was the favorite apple to use, because it had justed ripened and was the freshest! When not in season, Grandma would use other tart apples that are available.
There is just something about the wonderful aroma of a pie baking in Grandma's kitchen. Memories from childhood come flooding back.
