Annie's Apple Attributes
From the "Apple a Day Cookbook: The Best to Boost Buffalo," published in 1976 by The Buffalo, NY, Woman's Auxiliary to the Medical Society. My mom worked on this cookbook as a member of the Auxiliary Society. We never knew why the recipe was called 'attributes' but we loved this open-faced apple pie treat! Cat Moleski
