This recipe is more than 75 years old. Mom made it often, since it was Dad's favorite. We have so many wonderful apple orchards in Rhode Island, and I really enjoy taking my grandsons out to pick our own.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2011

"turned out really delicious, added 1 cup more apples, and sprinkled with a little nutmeg, to give it that little something, for the topping I added 1/3c. nuts, what I really liked, the slices stayed nice and firm even the next day, will definitely make it again. thanks for a great recipe!"

"I have used this recipe for about 17 years. I got it from an elderly friend who was a wonderful cook and had a fantastic collection of family recipes. She shared many of them with me and this one has become a family favorite."
