Amelia's French Apple Pie

Recipe by bigherbncv

My Mom got this recipe from a baker in Baltimore and I have loved this pie for 60+ years.

Perfect! This was just what I was looking for... friends parents were visiting, and her dad always ordered French Apple Pie if it was on the menu, so I told her I'd make one. I substituted Craisins for the raisins, and her Dad said it was the best one he's ever had.
