I interrupt our regular programming with a recipe post.
Of the few childhood staples in our family, only two of them are desserts: cheesecake (plain as can be), and apple pie. (And probably caramel pudding, but I never liked the overly eggy+sweet taste and “soft” texture of it so it doesn’t exist in my list. )
Since cheesecake is too simple and widespread to even have to write a recipe, I shall share the apple pie one. Mama’s apple pie is baked in the oven, while the filling is cooked on the stove beforehand. Some other pie recipes may differ from this method.
