Truly Homemade Apple Pie

This beautiful and delicious apple pie is about as homemade as they come. Not only did I make the crust from scratch, but I actually picked the apples from my very own apple tree in our backyard! I didn't follow any one recipe exactly, but rather pulled from a few sources to create my own concoction. And it turned out wonderfully, if I do say so myself! Plus, while the pie was baking and bubbling away, I made butter tarts with the leftover crust dough. These remind me so much of my grandma, and they were my absolute favorite treat to eat at her house. I'm sure she must have made plenty of pies, but I don't remember any of them as well as those flaky, buttery cinnamon tarts.
