I have been making this pie for over 25 years. I believe that I clipped this recipe from a magazine in the late 80s. I don't remember which magazine now. I wrote down the history of this classic apple pie, because I thought it was really interesting and special.
"This old-fashioned apple-pie recipe won the 1987 Grand Prize in Salem Cross Inn's Annual Beehive Oven bake-off. Creators Lillie Bothwell (102 years old) and Louise Waid (106 years old), both residents of the Quaboag Nursing Home, credit their success to years of experience. They placed in the year before and decided not to enter in 1988 in order to give the younger folks a chance."
I've tweaked this recipe a little bit over the years to my tastes and every time that I serve it to people they tell me it is the best apple pie they ever had. I hope you enjoy this pie as much as my family has over the years, and I hope that it becomes a centerpiece in your baking as much as it has in mine.
This is a Weicht family recipe that has been passed down for several generations. Whenever our extended family is gathered together, these brownies are always brought by someone. They often disappear quick too. These marshmallow brownies are perfect for welcoming September (and with September - Autumn), because they have butterscotch, chocolate, pecans, and marshmallows in them. The ingredients (particularly the butterscotch and the pecans) scream Autumn to me. Whether it's a family get together, an Autumn picnic, or a sweet craving, these disappearing marshmallow brownies are the perfect dessert for the event!
