My Grandmother’s Apple Pie

This is my Grandmother’s recipe for apple pie that I know you will love. She used to make a dozen of these pies for the holidays. She would wrap these up in small boxes and everyone of the grandchildren got a small pie and a few dollars for Chanukah. I can tell you that we all looked forward to getting these pies.
