Classic Apple Pie with a No-Fail Crust

Classic Apple Pie with a No-Fail Crust

The first fall Frog Prince and I were married, Frog Prince told me how much he liked apple pie.

Bound and determined as I am, I decided to make him an apple pie.

At this point – mind you, I had Let alone, I had never attempted making a pie {and pie crust} all by myself.  Nor, did I have any real idea how to take food photos at that point {see exhibit A, above}.  Heck, Finding Joy in My Kitchen did not even exist.

But. I made my husband an apple pie.

The recipe comes from my grandmother(s) on both sides of my family.  The crust, comes from my 92-year-old grandmother.  The filling, comes from my maternal grandmother, via my mom.  That makes this pie, quite special.
