Imagine coming home to the smell of cinnamon, flaky pastry, and baked apples, the wonderful smell of a fresh homemade apple pie. That smell can make almost anyone feel comforted and at home. Making a pretty apple pie takes practice but it never has to lack in flavor.
This is the recipe that I have been taking to family gatherings the last few years and it is now expected that I will be bringing the apple pie. It is just as perfect for holiday parties as it is for a weeknight dessert. My trick to making it easier, using a box mix for my pie crust, it tastes better then a pre-made crust but isn’t as hard to get just right as making it all from scratch.
For holidays I like to dress up the crust a little. I use a leaf cookie cutter to make cute leaves for Thanksgiving, and I have used snowman cookie cutters for my Christmas pies. You can do a lattice top or just cover it all up with a few slits. How ever you would like it to look.
