Passover apple pie from Cookkosher.com
A secret Passover recipe from my aunt; simple ingredients that yield a high quality pie.
Presented by Cookkosher.com - The Home of Kosher Recipes
Although the ingredients are nothing unusual, they yield a high quality and addictive pie. Dare we say one of the best Passover pies around. My aunt has helper that knows the family recipes better than my aunt, but to make herself indispensable she doesn't give them out. When she does, something is always missing. When I called her to get this recipe, it didn't seem right. But after a couple of phone calls and some memory digging, I assembled it the way it was supposed to be. Share it. Now, that is sweet revenge!
