I love it when old cookbooks to the rescue. In this case, it’s the 1976 version of Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. My daughter initially wanted to make an apple crisp for dessert but ended up making this apple custard pie. It’s easy to make because you just pile the peeled and sliced apples in the pie crust, then make a custard mix with sugar, flour, salt and light cream. (We used half and half.) Pour that over the pie, sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon, cover and bake. In this case, we also had a pie crust in the freezer so the pie came together quite quickly after defrosting the dough.
