Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Notes about this recipe

  • hillsboroks on August 14, 2018

    What a lovely flavor combination and one I would not have thought of before I saw this recipe. I only added 2 tbls rose water and didn't tell my husband what made this pie smell and taste so good until after he had a piece. The rosewater really meld sin with the apple flavor to create a lovely harmony. Next time I will add the full amount of rosewater. Unless you have fairly sweet apples this recipe yields a not too sweet pie. I used some of our tart Gravensteins and next time will increase each sugar to 1/2 cup to compensate.
