My husband prides himself on being an apple pie aficionado. Over the course of the years of our marriage, I’ve tried EVERY apple pie recipe with the crust being the toughest challenge to master. Homemade crust or store bought? Use butter or margarine? Refrigerate or prepare at room temperature? I tried just about every recipe I could put my hands on – to no avail. Enter Judy into our lives. Judy makes the perfect apple pie week after week – with a crust so easy, you’ll wonder why people try to make it any other way. Judy has given me permission to share her recipe with all of you. Thanks Judy!
