Four Easy Apple Pie Recipes

I love apple pie. I could eat it any time of year. Fall is a great time to pick up some apples on sale and make a couple of apple pies. Make one to eat now and freeze one for later. The recipe for Old-Fashioned Apple Pie freezes well. After you prepare the pie for baking, cover it with foil and freeze for later. When you bake it, it will taste like you just made it!

When making apple pies, keep in mind that some apples are better for baking than others. Granny Smith apples are a baking favorite. Experiment with different baking apples to find your family’s favorite. Tart varieties work best for baking.
