Ingredients: Metric Units
Pie crust for 2 crust pie
8 lg. apples, peeled and sliced

Yankee Magazine printed this recipe years ago; it's finished off many a Sunday dinner at our house since.

Yield: 1 pie. 8 nice big slices. More if you've got "just a sliver" types at your table.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Line a 9 inch pie plate with the pie crust.

In a medium saucepan, combine sliced apples, raisins, sugar, wine, orange rind, and almonds. Cook over low heat for about 15 min. Stir it gently once or twice. Remove from heat and stir in the jam. Cool.

Spoon cooled mixture into bottom crust and cover with top crust. Pinch edges together. Make a slit in the top with a sharp knife or snip with kitchen scissors.

Bake at 350F for 45 min. Enjoy! -Diana
