Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is an apple pie Iíve been making since I was 13 years old. I traditionally made this pie for special occasions/holidays. Iíve now incorporated it to work. I make these pies now for co-workers of mine that Iíve worked with for some time and are leaving either because of a promotion or pursuing their own personal goals. Iíve been told the pies are very good and I should quit my day job. Iíve even heard co-workers wanting to leave just so that they could get a pie. I plan to continue making pie and sharing with everyone I can.
