I love the fall with its changing leaves and pumpkin, cinnamon and apple scents. Another great fall perk is National Dessert Day on October 14th, which is arguably the best day of the year. I love celebrating this holiday by baking my favorite autumn dessert. I love so many sweets, but there's always one dessert I turn to when I'm in desperate need of satisfying my cold weather sweet tooth—homemade apple pie.
I'm a well known sucker for fudgey brownies, s’mores, and dark chocolate desserts, but if I’m being honest an amazing slice of warm, homemade apple pie has my heart any and every day of the week. I'm well aware of the innovative and incredible tasting desserts that are out there in this world, but this classic dessert, especially after a long day of apple picking, never lets me down.
Although my homemade apple pies may not be Instagram-worthy, they definitely make me happy and I hope this recipe will make you happy as well.
