Andrea's Prize Winning Apple Pie RecipeAndrea Roper, independent insurance agent at Southern States Insurance agency, shares with us her prize winning family recipe that is both delicious and simple!

There’s good reason Gilmer County is commonly known as the Apple Capital of Georgia. The number of delicious apples grown all through out the county leave no room to question the title. From August to December in Gilmer County is the best apple season anywhere and the time of the Georgia Apple Festival in Ellijay.

Our insurance agency is very proud of our agent Andrea Roper for winning the red ribbon for her apple pie recipe, and because she loves to cook and share her cooking.

Andrea’s Award Winning Grated Apple Pie

  • 4 cups of apples, grated
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 1 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix it all in a bowl and pour it in an unbaked pie crust and bake for 45-50 minutes on 350. Enjoy.

Share Your Fall Recipes With Andrea

Andrea loves to read recipes and try new things in the kitchen. She would love you to share your favorite fall recipes! She gets most of her recipes from local cookbooks, church and family.

Although she saved every Southern living magazine for the last 20 years, she still loves finding a good new recipe!

Good To The Core

Southern States Insurance is so blessed to have Andrea on staff. It doesn’t take long to realize how much she cares for her customers and wants to help them save money on their insurance and succeed in everything they dream of.

Andrea gave half of her winnings to “Helping Hands for Jesus” a local food bank whose efforts help feed homeless families in Royston Georgia.

She believes the key ingredient in finding good insurance is to find an agent you are comfortable with and can trust. Andrea emphasizes the importance of having confidence in your agent’s knowledge and finding an insurance agent who cares about you.

At Southern States Insurance agency we know Andrea’s apple pie is sweet, but she is even sweeter. Congratulations Andrea on your prize winning recipe!
