About

I love a good apple pie. But I’ve found that most are too sweet for my taste. And I absolutely abhor apple pie made with canned apples. So if you like a sweet sweet apple pie, this isn’t it.

I don't know when or how I came up with this recipe. Maybe my mother made it this way, maybe my grandmother. My Dad adores it, and I give it to him as a present when the occasion arises.

The crust is made with butter and just a dab of shortening to keep the crust in shape.
