I first made this pie for my family because I didn't have enough of one kind of berry. Now, I bring several of these pies to bake sales...they're often purchased before I can even get them to the sale table!
I remember coming home sullen one day because we'd lost a softball game. Grandma, in her wisdom, suggested, "Maybe a slice of hot apple pie will make you feel better." One bite…and Grandma was right. —Maggie Greene, Granite Falls, Washington
This delicious pie was brought to my mother's home the day after my father died on Christmas Eve 25 years ago. Every time I bake it I am reminded of the tremendous outpouring of love and support that we received. It's a pie that my sweet daddy would have loved.
I think of my grandmother every time I make this pie...it's a recipe she made often. Because of my husband's engineering job, we've lived in several states, and I've shared this recipe with lots of friends I've made over the years.
The tangy taste of this pie makes it a hit in the summertime. (We especially like it after a spicy meal.) I love making desserts, and whenever we have a potluck at church, everybody knows I'll be bringing a dessert.
