PLEASE HELP! Need Apple Pie recipe from an old Bon Appetit

Hi There,
I know this is a long shot, but I saw that another chowhound had luck with a similar problem.

I'm hoping you all can help.

I need a recipe from a Nov or Dec '91 or '92 Bon Appetit (maybe '93).
My gut feeling is that it's the Nov 91 issue.
It's for an Apple Cider Apple Pie with a double crust.
I'm pretty sure it's a thankgiving issue with a turkey on the cover.
All I remember is that there is apple cider and golden delicious apples (as well as granny smith) in the filling.

This is my Nana's favorite pie and she's requested it this year. She's 92yrs old and struggling w/her health. You don't know how bad I want to give her this small joy.

Thanks, in advance, for your help.
Miss Velvet

  1. You've checked Epicurious? I didn't see a pie with that exact name but there are a lot of apple pies there so if you read some of the recipes you might find that with a different name.

    If it was in Bon Ap├ętit or Gourmet it should be on Epicurious.

    1. Yes, you should search on

      Here's all the recipes that came up for "apple pie bon appetit 1992":

      You can also search by month and year.

      1. Try "Google" or "Ask" too!

        1. November *1995* Bon Appetit has a pie with golden delicious + other apples and *cider vinegar*--I know that's not what you said, but my mind has "played tricks" regarding old recipes--so I thought I'd include this long shot.

          1. Check this site. They have 523 recipes listed, but I'll bet one of the first six will be pretty close.
