Arlene Schultz (may God rest her soul) took care of our kids when they were younger and was an honorary grandmother. She was smart and hard working, and she was the pillar of an extensive family of good-hearted and capable children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. We lost her to cancer several years ago, and her youngest daughter is in that fight today. Surprisingly, Arlene’s mother outlived her.
Anyway, Arlene liked to make a traditional apple pie on a cookie sheet. It had a crust and a bit of glazed frosting. We ended up with several other of Arlene’s recipes, which are posted here. I’m still looking for her Chicken Pie recipe, which we probably have around somewhere.
