We just won our local town July 4th Apple Pie Contents with this pie! It was SO GOOD. I used a sharp cheddar instead of Monterey Jack and some jalapenos from our local community garden. This was a fun pie to make and relatively easy given the instructions in the recipe. Thanks for a fun 4th!
This recipe is from a group of ladies from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. They have produced one of the best series of cookbooks ever starting with one called "The Best of Bridge". I highly recommend every one of their books. This is one of the easiest pies to make and I make it by the dozen, then freeze them uncooked as great house-party contributions.
Absolutely the hit of the party!!! I was in a lazy mood and used pie filling, stirred in the minced jalapenos and used the jalapeno jelly on the crust. Yummy yummy! Next time I will use more jalapeno, and maybe try cheddar for the topping, or a mix. Who knows! Highly reated!!!
