Apple Pie

Apple Pie

Watch the video for this recipe:

Autumn is by far my favorite season, for me there are no days so pleasing to the eye as the sunny ones from October, filled with great colors of yellow, bronze, green and red. 


This leaf decorated Apple Pie is a great way to celebrate the year’s most colorful season. It is a comforting pie, with a buttery flaky crust filled with sweet, cinnamon flavored and  tender apples, a memorable dessert to enjoy with your loved ones.

The recipe is quite similar to the berry pie, but decorated differently and used different spices for the filling. It is best served slightly warm with a big scoop of ice cream on top.

Awesome. Great recipe. And I believe that the 1/2 c sugar means white sugar. Because I don't know of any other sugars.
