This is my dad's favorite pie! This tradition started before my parents married. Dad and his commanding officer, andy anderson, had to visit another air force base. Andy's wife, eileen, made two pies for the trip. My dad never had a sweet tooth, but when he took one bite of that pie, he could not resist it. He and andy devoured the pies before returning home. My dad kept talking the pies! On their wedding day, the andersons tucked the recipe in their gift. After 56 years of marriage, mom still bakes this pie. However, in 2010, she was striken with breast cancer. All of us were fearful of losing her and her wonderful family traditions. Thankfully, she beat cancer. Today, we celebrate her life with her famous country apple pie. Which has a most unique creamy taste!
