|An assorted collection of handwritten vintage pie recipes, just like grandmother use to bake from scratch, taken from recipe boxes
during the decades of the 1950's, 60's and 70's.
A little history of women gathered here for your enjoyment. These recipes are yours to use, free. I have collected recipe boxes for
many years and have decided to share my finds with you. All recipes were found in these boxes and journals were handwritten. They
were passed down from one generation to the next, from neighbor to neighbor, and from friend to friend.
Enjoy! The first pie recipe is my mother's recipe.

|Here it is, Homebaked Apple Pies like my mom baked. That's her, up top in the
photo with me beside her. Wow, 1972! What a long time ago that was. Sigh.
Here goes, just like my mom made:
Have your children pick about 10 ripe apples from your apple tree. I don't know
what kind of apples were in my parent's back yard, but the apples were both sweet
and tart if you bit into one. The tree was planted there before I was born. The
apples were green with a brown spotted spot look. Nothing like any apple I've ever

Now, put mixture in a pie shell, dot here, there, and everywhere with little clumps of
real sweet butter. Smear milk around shell crust's top, add other shell crust on
top. (the smeared milk helps hole the two crust together, mom said) Now - Using a
brush, put milk over all. Mom said the milk made the crust brown nicely.

nice and brown.
That was how my mom made apple pie. A true vintage recipe.
