|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:
Make your children go out back and pick about 10 ripe apples from
the tree. I don't know what kind of apples these were, but they 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 that.)
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.
|"Real Good Pecan Meringue Pie", she wrote on the top of the index card.
Beat 1 cup Karo light or dark syrup, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup chopped Pecans, 3
eggs, 2 Tablespoons melted Oleo and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour into unbaked
9 inch pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or till almost set in the
center. Cool. Beat 3 egg whites to soft peaks, gradually beat in 1/3 cup
Karo - white. Spread over pie to the edge. Bake at 425 degrees for 5
