|Mom always made the best crust, then her filling was rich in cinnamon, brown sugar and butter.|
|Chad hadn't been back home in 16 years so he filled up his suitcase with everything and anything he could fit!|
My son Chad just came back from vacationing in Utica NY, he brought me the NY State Apples, some Tomato Pie from Napolis'. I do make my own recipe for tomato pie, but there's always that one you grew up with that brings back awesome memories.
