Gramma’s apple pie for Mom on Mother’s Day. It wasn’t until recently that I was lucky enough to be given Gramma’s recipe, beautifully written in her tall slanted cursive. This is my first time making it, hoping I have come close to the taste Mom remembers and she can close her eyes and taste Gramma’s apple pie as if she was right here and had baked it herself.
9 cups sliced, tart cooking apples (sliced thinly, that’s how Gramma did it)
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
Mix in bowl. Arrange in unbaked pie shell and dot with butter.
Brush with 1 egg yolk beaten and 1 tablespoon water.
400˚ oven for 40 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is brown.
Happy Mother’s Day!
