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