Apple Pie

Recipe by CindiJ

I found this recipe in 1980 in a very old Farm Journal Best Ever Pie Cookbook. So simple, so delicious. Make this with Cheddar Cheese Pie Pastry for best results.

Great pie! I omitted the lemon because I didnt have any and used some tarter apples. It was amazing and my new favorite apple pie recipe!
