Trudie’s Treats-Homemade Treasures

If it’s possible for a Scandinavian apple pie to be better than an American one, Trudie’s Swedish apple pie takes the cake. The secret: sweet, juicy apples, nuts to keep it crunchy, and a crust made with real butter. You can find Trudie’s pie (and an assortment of other baked goods) at Arena Farms in Concord, Mahoney’s in Winchester, and a number of other area farmstands.
