  • NOTES:
  • Serving Ideas : After every meal forever...says Marty.NOTES : Well here we go might notice how many people this serves? Yes just one if its Marty, the apple pie man.
  • But for most of the human race, we can probably get 6-8 servings out of it. But did I ever tell you about the time I went to visit a farmhouse friend of my Grandma? Our family had dinner there and the woman who made the dinner, Mary, served each one of us a quarter of a pie for dessert! Me, being the city girl I was (and still am) was shocked...but loved every minute of it. I was about 12 and that's when I noticed my hips beginning to widen...wonder what started that? This pie is super as is our Carol...why do I always bring up farming when I talk about Carol? She's a city girl now, too.
  • CHEF'S TRICK...Whenever I make apple pies, I like to mix up apples...Granny Smith's, Winesap, Delicious...whatever. I think it just tastes good. And you don't have to peel these apples and a mixup would look pretty.
