Apple Pie

There's nothing like going apple picking! Somehow the apples picked from an orchard seem to taste far above anything from a grocery store. I drove to Indiana recently just to visit my parents, and the kids wanted to go apple picking.

Oh, the apples were huge...and so tasty! I hated peeling all of the ones we picked , but I learned the best thing is to get it done. I also went ahead and made apple pie filling and put it in freezer bags. I figured then when I got the craving for a good apple pie, all I had to do was pull one of those out of the freezer, thaw, and bake in a crust.

That's just what I did yesterday. I baked two big Dutch apple pies....and today every last crumb is gone. Why? Four teenagers live here- need I say more? Next time I had better make more!

Mmmmmmmmm. My husband's family loves in CT and when we go up there we always get those fresh-picked apples. Soooo good.

Oh man, I have been craving apple pie lately! That is so great that you got to pick the apples for it! Oh I might have to try and make one this weekend, I've never tried, but I used to help my grandma all the time when I was young.

Hiii, did you say apple pie? I just love it. I make it myself using an Australian recipe served with cream. Too delicious :)
