Dutch Apple Pie

"In the 1950's, great diners offered this all-American favorite chock-full of raisins, apples and covered with a lemony sugar glaze. The crust is amazing and the glaze is simply delicious!!! Tip: I use allspice or pumpkin spice since mace is hard to find."

I work at an automobile plant (no need to mention which one as this whole town is known for them). I have one son, Jamie, who is 30 and a grandson,Sean,(and a granddaughter on the way. My grandson is 12 years old-not spoiled at all-yeah right! LOL He's my baby and trust me he pretty much gets whatever he wants. We love Nascar and Ohio State Buckeyes-Go Bucks!!! I've cooked all my life (my family is from KY) and am just now starting to explore a lot of differnt recipes other than southern food. I love the recipes on this site and also get the best recipes from this site. I love people and talking to people and learning their likes and dislikes. I don't cook much during the week as my job keeps me very busy so by the time I get home I'm pretty much done. I have several different favorite places to eat out at, Red Lobster, Damons and Roosters(best chicken wings I've ever had) are my top 3 spots but on the weekends I cook up a storm.
