I've baked many apple pies in the last 40 years. But when I entered this apple pie at the 1987 Kansas State Fair, it won first prize! The prize was especially meaningful, because the contest was sponsored by the Kansas Mother's Assn., and of the 31 pies entered, mine was the one that was presented to the Kansas Mother of the Year.
This recipe is older than I am...and I was born in 1919! My mother and grandmother made this pie with buttermilk and eggs from our farm and set it on the tables at church meetings and social gatherings. I did the same and now our children make it, too! —Kate Mathews, Shreveport, Louisiana
