Apple Pie

Marsha Gardner


My husband's all time favorite dessert. He likes his pie with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

There is an old Pennsylvania Dutch saying that I embroidered in a sampler years ago that says--An apple pie without the cheese is like a kiss without the squeeze.
