Apple Pie Memories

My mom is an awesome cook. When I was a little girl, I was amazed at the long spirals made when she peeled apples for pie.   She used to let us have one or two sugared apple slices. Yesterday, after I peeled and sliced the apples and tossed them with spiced sugar, I called my youngest into the room to have a sugared apple slice.  It's a nice memory. 

I always make a pumpkin and apple pie to take to Thanksgiving meal and I always make a pumpkin and apple pie to return home to.  But sometimes we get into it the night before Thanksgiving.  If you want a really good apple pie recipe, then you will want to try this one.  It uses boiled cider in the apple filling.  Yum!  I made a mistake and used regular cider, and it still turned out well.  Very saucy.  The boiled cider would be better.  Here's a link for making boiled cider, and the link below is for the pie.  Enjoy!

Two pumpkin pies and two apple pies for me too...and we always "get into" ours the night before! Hope your family has had a delightful day.
