appppppple pie

I might have mentioned once or twice that I like to bake. I don't know why or where the joy started but a little after we moved into this house, I bought myself a kitchen aid (in one of my "Ben works too much, and I'm lonely" weeks) I started making cookies often, and have even branched out to some challenging layered brownies or quick bread type rolls. Most have been successful and I've definitely learned that the more peanut butter the better when it comes to my chocolate cookies.
Now to actually explain this post I'll tell you that my family loves pie. We happen to make a big deal of eating LOTS of it when it comes to thanksgiving. Since we'll actually be in Utah this year, I wanted to be able to make my own pie, and Benjamin wanted me to be as authentic as I could. Enter The Pioneer Woman, her pie crust, and apple pie recipes. Here is the result. The crust is ugly to be sure (can you even see it) but I took this picture when it was still bubbling and OH BOY!!!!!
If it doesn't taste as good as I think it will, I may to do a review, but if you see no further posts then just assume it was AMAZING. And I'll be serving homemade whip cream with it as well....I'm that good :)
