Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe is in honor of my grandmother, Eva Mae Jamison Crumel Revels, who made a similar pie completely from scratch. Apple pie isn't the same since grandma went to rest with God and grandpa. The pie symbolizes the amazing love and sense of family togetherness she gave all of us.

I make it during the holiday season in honor of her and give it to friends and family. Rome apples only available during this season.
