Fall is finally here, and I’m about as happy as a dog with a bone! Fall means beautiful changing leaves, cooler weather, casserole dishes, and all kinds of holidays to share with friends and family members. But most importantly, the arrival of fall means it’s officially apple season, and apple season can only mean one thing: APPLE PIES!
There’s just somethin’ about apple pies that’s so comforting. Whenever I bake a fresh one for Michael, or Jamie and Bobby, my house fills with the most mouth-waterin’ aroma, with hints of sweet, gooey apples, sugar, and cinnamon all floating around at once. I’m instantly transported back to when I was a little girl makin’ apple pies with my momma and grandmomma. (My favorite part was always rollin’ out the dough, but my grandmomma always kept an eye on me to make sure I didn’t over-knead it.)
This fall, though, I wanted to try something just a little bit different. We’ve all had traditional apple pies, but I wanted to give y’all a few variations, startin’ with the base of any good pie—a perfect pie crust! I hope you’ll tell me which recipe is your favorite!
