Kickstart to Fall: Apple Pie

Every year once the long, sweaty, summer starts to wind down I begin to crave some cool weather. Lately I have been so excited for the up coming months for some fall weather and food! This week my mom and I were craving apple pie after some cooler weather we had that day. I was looking on pinterest (evangelinedaily) for good recipes because I have only made apple pie once or twice and didn’t save the recipe. I came across Lauren Conrad’s blog. She had a Martha Stewart recipe that looked delicious! I have my grandmother pie crust recipe but I used Lauren’s/Martha’s apple pie filling. Here are the pictures from my pie making experience and I thought it turned out pretty well!DSC_0400

I used my grandmothers dough recipe and surprisingly it was not difficult at all! I used my food processor so that made it easier as well. I totally recommend NOT using the store bought dough because the homemade dough tastes so much better and does not have all of the chemicals that the store bought dough does.
