Vintage Apple Pie Recipe 1922 compared to my Apple Pie recipe

In the fall there is nothing as good as a warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream rested on top of the slice of pie. Traditional Dutch apple pie comes in two varieties, a crumb appelkruimeltaart and a lattice appeltaart  style pie. Both recipes are very  distinct in that they will usually call cinnamon and lemon juice to be added and may differ in texture, however, not taste. Dutch apple pies may include ingredients such as cream butter, raisins and almond paste, as well as ingredients such as apples and sugar, which they have in common with other recipes.

Below I have shared my apple pie recipe for you in comparison to the vintage version of Igleheart’s Cake Secrets, 1922, Apple Filling for Pie and crust recipe. I hope you’ll enjoy both recipes for years to come. If you try either please come back and let me know what you thought of them.
