Gramma John’s Blue Ribbon Apple Pie (Recipe Swap: Pie Oh My!)

[4]Pie is probably one of my very favorite desserts. I have wonderful memories of watching my Gramma John or my mom magically transform fruit, flour, sugar and butter into something amazing.

I was about ten when I first tried to do it on my own. Lemon Meringue with fresh lemons from our tree in the back yard was the first for me to tackle. Dad encouraged me to try Banana Cream Pie, his favorite. And a few years later took on our family classic, Gramma John’s Blue Ribbon Apple Pie.

As the story goes, my Gramma John entered a number of dishes in the fair every year. And every year she nabbed a prize for her apple pie. Tradition was to share the recipe over the radio. But, sly woman that she was, Gramma always changed the recipe so that no one, least of all her competition, could steal the spotlight from her the following year.

As a result, her daughters in law always wondered if they had the right version of the recipe!

But, you know me, I’m all about sharing the wealth. So, here it is, Gramma’s masterpiece, complete with my own tweaking.
