Connections With Cooking And Baking Recipes

There is something special about connecting with cooking and baking recipes. Search the internet, and you will find hundreds of thousands of cooking recipe blogs. We most likely have more than one recipe book in our cupboards where we have marked our favorites. We will ask for the recipe at family and friend gatherings when food is involved because we want to try it. 
Recently, my sister asked me to make an apple pie. She said, "The one you used to make." I then recalled, "Yes, Swedish Apple Pie."  I've had this recipe for over thirty years, and it was an apple pie that I often made for family and friend gatherings. As I looked over the ingredients needed, my thoughts brought me back to when I would make this pie in my small, humble kitchen as a wife and mother to four young children. The connection was beautiful because I could not remember the last time I made this recipe. 
The Swedish Apple Pie was well-liked at our family gathering. I would like to share the recipe with all of you as well;
~Swedish Apple Pie~ 
"makes its own crust."
From the cookbook called: Recipes From Minnesota With Love By Betty Mallsow
4 cups sliced, peeled apples
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
Pinch salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Fill an 8-inch pie pan with apples. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix butter, salt, sugar, flour, egg, and nuts together, and sprinkle on top of the apples. Bake at 350-degree oven for 1 hour. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. 

Here is a photo of my baked Swedish Apple Pie:

With love,
