I have been making this recipe for many years. I think my mother in-law first taught me to make this and I have adapted it from her original recipe.

In the fall I love to make this pie with good ol Colorado jonathan apples, I love the tartness of the jonathans!!!

I never come home from a potluck dinner with any left over!!!
