Fall is in the air here…ok I may be rushing it but as September sets in I find my urge to bake becomes strong. One of my favourites to bake is this Apple Pie Recipe and right now apples are in season which makes it even better.

This recipe isn’t difficult…it’s all about the apples and the spices. Take your time with the dough, don’t over work it as it will become too stiff and your pie won’t be all that it’s meant to be. Feel free to omit any spices you don’t love…honestly it’s going to be a hit either way.

One of my most popular apple recipes is this Apple Crisp Shortbread bars recipe so I figured you all might want to try out my Apple Pie Recipe.
