The Best and Prettiest Apple Pie


I was baking this pie for many years. It comes out very tasty and looks different and original than any pies I ever seen or tasted. The pie could be made with any fruit (pears, apricots, plums or cherries). My favorite is sour cherries, but they have a very short season and the frozen ones are too wet.
