Just gave my neigbor a jar of my Apple Butter and in trade she gave me this recipe. She said it was in her family for years. I felt honored that she shared it with me. My sweetheart Woody loves this pie. Going to make it again for Thanksgiving for sure. With it's flaky crust, creamy filling and great taste; this one is a keeper.
