Apple Pie

Late September means the heart of apple season! It's the perfect time to take out those rolling pins and make a delicious apple pie. We like to use a variety of apples. Our favorites for pie are Fuji, Macintosh, and Granny Smith. This recipe utilizes a cooked apple filling. It reduces the time that the pie has to be in the oven and the filling can be used for other things besides pie. It's great on pancakes, too!
