Aunt Florence’s Apple Pie

Aunt Florence's Apple Pie

I made three different pies for last week’s party- Aunt Florence’s Apple Pie, a Sweet Potato Pie and a Brown Sugar Peach Pie. Here is Aunt Florence’s Apple Pie, a recipe from my Chebeague Island Cookbook that I bought a few years ago on our Maine vacation.

This pie was a good pie and a very different way of doing apple pie than I normally do, so I’m glad I tried it. The apples were alternately layered with the sugar spice mix and then cream was added to the middle. This was a very nicely spiced pie – everyone loved it – but just wait until you try the brown sugar peach pie!
