YUM!!

This is one of my favorite ways to make apple pie!!  I found this recipe in a little Pillsbury “pie” cookbook years ago, it’s listed on their site as a “Bake Off” WINNER in 1951! It’s a self-glazing apple pie that tastes as wonderful as it looks!!!

It’s easy to make too!  Thanks to refrigerated pie crusts.  Of course you could always make your own pie crust, if you’d like.  Just make sure you make enough for a 2-crust pie.
Grab your apron!

We’re going to make an apple pie that’s sure to knock their socks off!
