This was the first thing I learned to help with in the kitchen. My great aunt Naomi would make pie pastry, roll it out and let me cut around a saucer,inverted, to make the crust using a table knife. Using home dried fruit, usually apples, reconstituted on the top of the stove with a small amount of water and spices these were made. Today when I make them I use canned biscuits. My version is the one I am posting.
