Golden Apple Pie

By September 20, 2009Baking, Dessert

One of our families Fall traditions, is apple picking. We are very lucky to live in a area that offers many u-pick farms. The farm we usually pick at offers a wagon ride, fresh apple cider samples and tons of great apples to choose from.

I typically bake pies in the Fall and around the holidays, and just couldn’t pass up the apples today. And having the Fall Festival this week was another great reason to bake.
