Maudie Mae's Famous Apple Pie

Erika Orrantia


During the depression years, my grandma had to take charge of feeding the family and as a result went door to door selling salad master pans. Her cooking is what sold the customers, making her one of the top sellers in all the country. This apple pie is one of her most prized desserts, and most requested.
