i hadn't made an apple pie since last september. the month my grandmother was born. the month that she died. and now a whole year has gone by without her.

i knew i could always find homemade apple pie on her kitchen counter no matter what day of the week it was. and i always knew that it would be the best apple pie i had ever tasted. my apple pie can't even come close. but it gives me a goal to aim towards. in her memory.

gram's swedish apple pie recipe

fill a 9" pie plate 2/3 full with sliced and peeled apples of your choice. sprinkle with 1T. of cinnamon and 2 T. sugar. in a separate bowl, combine the following:

3/4 cup melted butter
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour
pinch of salt

pour batter over sliced apples and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog!
Those apples....yum!! There is nothing like a homemade pie and nothing like grandmothers' pies.

Yay-so nice to see the SAP recipe here. But I have the best version at home--the one written in your handwriting that I demanded from you after you brought over one of these gems after my own gram passed away. It's a treasure--just like you and those grams!
