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

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 w
ere 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
seen since.

Have your children peel, core, and pare your apples.

Take out two pie shells purchased from Super Duper. (If you don't have them in the
freezer, tell your teenager to run over to Super Duper on bike and get you a couple
pie crust.)

Take children's cup up apples, mix with some cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, a
dash of salt.  Never measure anything, just go by the look and taste of mixture. A
smidge of real lemon. Sprinkle with flour to thicken and mix a little longer.  
Remember to use the wooden spoon or else it won't taste right. (She really said

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.

Using fork, jab several holes on top.  Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees until
nice and brown.

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