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!!!

And it’s easy too!

Grab your apron!

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

    O.K. So this is only the third pie I’ve looked at since the 2010 Party started. I can see already that I’m going to have a heck of a time deciding which pie to make next at my house. Stunning looking pie you’ve made here.
