We are so very lucky to have wonderful neighbors in Florida. Jamie and Jeff live across the street. I love to bring them goodies from time to time and Jeff surprised us with this wonderful pie which was delicious.
Thank you Jamie and Jeff for sharing Grandma's recipe.
For For over 20 years, my husband Jeff has used his Grandmother's recipes to hold the rag ends of family together. Each Thanksgiving we gather under our roof to celebrate tradition and recount good memories of the past. Jeff's grandmother is remembered fondly while her great-grandchildren play on the floor with the mischief and ferocity of 6 week old kittens.
The matriarch of the family, Dorothy Rose Woodward Andrews has been gone almost a decade but she is present in the Sour Cream Apple Pie. The delightful flavor combinations of a sweet and sour dessert remind the family of her love. She had the ability to make harmony using unlikely ingredients and peace amongst irascible relatives.
