Darla Hill


Mrs. Fisher, born a black slave, found her way to San Francisco soon after the Civil War. By dint of talent and hard work, she created a life and business there. She and her husband created a business manufacturing and selling "pickles, preserves, brandies, fruits, etc."

Mrs. Fisher is a stellar pie baker and a consistent winner at the Sacramento California State Fair.

How to Make Cream Apple Pie Recipe


  1. The best of apples to be used. To two pounds of apples use a gill of water; put on fire to steam till the apples will mash perfectly fine and soft; sweeten to taste and let them cool. Season with powdered cinnamon--one-half teaspoonful of the best. Have one crust of pastry only, and that at the bottom of plate; fill plate with the fruit, then bake quickly in a hot oven. Take one pint of fresh cream sweetened to taste; beat the white of five eggs light, and add to the cream; flavor with vanilla.

    Beat the cream lightly before adding the eggs, then with a spoon spread over pies on sending to table
