Simple Apple Pie Recipe

I am so excited for today’s post, I am sharing a delicious and very simple apple pie recipe. (I also have a special giveaway at the bottom of my post) My mom makes this apple pie for almost every family get together. She usually makes her own pie crust but for simplicity sake you can buy pie crusts at the store. They are good, but nothing like her homemade crust.

I had so much fun spending time in the kitchen with my mom again. It brought back memories of helping her in the kitchen when I was younger.

    This looks SO good! I’ve always been intimidated by making a pie so I’ve never tried. Apple would be a good one to start with I think!

    You just can’t beat a good homemade apple pie- especially when it happens to be your mama’s recipe. <3 But I have to say that my favorite pie is either coconut cream or pumpkin. 🙂
