How about a Homemade Apple Pie!

love summer and I'm so sad to see it leaving us. Fall will soon be upon us and as I look out my windows I see our  apple tree with its beautiful fruit saying to me "I'll soon be ready."

     Picking the apples is wonderful fun! Over the years the family has picked bushels and bushels that we made into delicious apple sauce.
  But today these few apples in my apron are for a delicious Dutch apple Pie. The crust is different but really good. The recipe is from Taste of Home.

Yummy Nancy! Wanted to hop over and wish you a very Happy Birthday! You are such a sweetheart. Wondering how the Taste of Home turned out? Oh, by the way, I saw you on T.V. with a Funeral Potatoe competition. Did you know that my family calls them Sunshine potatoes? That's what it said on my recipe when I was first given it. Hope you had a wonderful day!
