My grandmother gave me this apple pie recipe after she made it for me during a visit about 5 years ago. I like to use Granny Smith apples, leave the peel on, and cut slices that are a little thick, but do whatever you wish! This is a very good pie and I'm always asked to make it! Thanks, Grandma!! (Very good served with vanilla ice cream!)
So named because I won a blue ribbon at the county fair with this recipe. I use recipe #13619 for the double pie crust. However, I especially love it with Recipe #109287. Prep time depends on if you are peeling & slicing the apples by hand or not.
After just making this again I think some may find the filling too thick so I am changing the instructions to say 2-4 tablespoons of cornstarch. We like our apples diced so it takes 3-4 large apples to achieve 4 cups. I also used the micro.this time stirring every couple minutes. No chance of burning on the bottom that way.
I am a connoisseur of peanut butter pies. Some are too fluffy, some are too dense. This is just right. I found this one in a Smucker's (R) ad and I've never had better, especially now that I've made a couple small changes. Reserve a spot at the gym, because you'll need it after you make this! (And trust me, licking the spoon is reason enough to make it.)
From a Houston Junior League cookbook, this is by far my favorite way to eat fresh strawberries. Quick, fresh, sweet and not at all gloppy. I think it's better when eaten right away than when chilled. If you purchase the red gloppy substance sold in your grocer's produce section to make strawberry shortcake or pie, please stop!!! This recipe can also be used as a quick strawberry shortcake or poundcake topping. You'll be suprised at the bright red color without food coloring, corn syrup or other nasty things that detract from beautiful fresh berries.
