Colonial Custard Apple Pie

"New from the Kitchen"
Recipe of the Month - November 2012

Colonial Custard Apple Pie
Desserts: Colonial Custard Apple Pie
Serves: 8-10

Our sous chef Jeffrey was inspired by a recipe from the 1600s that he found for an apple pie. With a little tweeking to bring it up to date it's now appearing on the menu at the Inn with great reviews. It would make a nice addition to your Thanksgiving desserts this year. Try it with a dollop of fresh whipped cream with a hint of vanilla.
