Oh my gosh. This pie is sooo good. Apples and cheddar compliment each other very nicely here - what else can I say? Try this one instead of your old standby apple pie recipe.

My mom gave me this recipe from a book she has. It's by FAR her favorite. I have made it twice. Beautiful pie, so flaky and delicious! I'm going to make it again today, trying to use a gluten free flour for a friend. Hope it works as well!!!
