Family Favorite Pie and Tart

Amazing Apple Pie

Amazing Apple Pie

This month’s #BakingBloggers theme is Holiday Pies. Pie is a favorite in our house. We love all sorts of pies. This Amazing Apple Pie is one my husband has been working on and modifying for years, it is an absolute favorite. This pie is requested very often and is likely what my husband is most famous for creating in our family.

We live near a farm area referred to as Apple Hill. It is chock full of apple orchards where you can go and pick apples right from the tree. There are also a few places that make amazing desserts including pies, tarts, hand pies and many other tasty apple goodies. This recipe started from a recipe from one of the farms, but as I mentioned, heavily modified over the years.
