3 Apple Pie Recipes: Just Like Grandma Used To Make

Hello, again friends.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend? A classic apple pie recipe anyone?

I love homemade apple pies. Do you too? Served warm with custard or ice cream, yummy!

Whenever I see them, I can’t help thinking of my Grandma. They also bring back fond memories of being a child. My Grandma always use to bake apple pies, whenever she could get the apples.

She used to make them up and freeze them too. Never a visit to Grandmas house without being offered a slice of her yummy apple pie or freshly made bread!! Her house used to smell amazing.

I can not ever remember a visit when younger and not be eating apple pies or homemade treats!! The good old days eh!?

Today I am sharing 3 apple pie recipes that remind me just like Grandma use to make and fond memories of growing up.

3 Apple Pie Recipes To Try Out: Just Like Grandma Used To Make:

1.) Spiced Apple and Ginger Pie:

How about mixing an apple pie up a little by adding some Belvoir Spiced Apple & Ginger Cordial into your pastry and apple pie filling: Spiced Apple and Ginger Pie.

2.) Butterscotch Apple Pie:

How about trying this Butterscotch Apple Pie. Just like Grandma used to make but this is a little easier as my Grandma used to make her own pasty and this recipe uses ready-made pasty to make it quicker.

3. Apple of Your Eye Pie:

How about trying this How To Make Apple of Your Eye Pie using some nice and scrumptious South African Golden Delicious and Granny Smith apples.

What food do you remember eating a lot when you were growing up?

Did your Grandma use to make the most amazing home cooked food too?

Fancy making any of these apple pies?

    Oh, I love the sound of these recipes! I’ll look forward to reading and trying them—the reading later today if I’m lucky, the trying come fall when apples are sweet, juicy and ripe again.As to your question, one grandmother hardly cooked at all, and the other prepared enormous farmer breakfasts with homemade apple butter, freshly churned butter from cream I’d helped her separate that morning, and fried eggs and fried chicken she’d raised herself. Funny. I don’t remember ever eating dessert at her house, but boy do I remember those breakfasts. Asked my mom how Grandma did it, so early in the morning. She said Grandma cooked most of the food—the chickens, the sausages—the day before or perhaps days before, and reheated them in the oven while she fried the eggs and bacon. Still, it was a lot of work, and one of the happier memories I have of that grandmother.

      Thanks for stopping by Kathryn and answering my question. I think my Grandma loved making sweet treats as my Granddad had a sweet tooth:)
