Fall Bucket List | #1 Make Apple Pies

I am getting almost everything on my Fall Bucket List checked off!! YAY! I have yet to write up some of the posts, but they will be on their way in the next week, or at least that is my plan! Yesterday I finally got around to making up some fresh Apple Pies! I used Grandma Karon's Apple Pie recipe which I posted back in August when I first started peeling, chopping and cutting apples. The stash is just about gone and I miss all the apple foods I made, but I am looking forward to tasting another delicious Apple Pie later on today!

I always make my own pie crusts...they are usually really crumbly looking like this before I add the water. If you click on the link for the Apple Pie recipe the crust recipe is at the bottom! That will make 2 top and 2 bottom crusts, but they will be really thin.

Doesn't this just look delicious?! :)

This is me working on the letters for the "Happy Thanksgiving" Pie.

Pies ready for baking! I ran out of dough so I had to do a simple top on the right pie. Well, I also ran out of time and I was in a lot of pain too... Besides the fact that cutting out each letter was kind of hard lol.

Finished pie number one. The crust broke a little bit because it was a tiny bit too thin, but it will be just fine!

This pie crust really isn't this dark, I had to darken the photo so you could see the lettering better. I took 10 photos and it just never showed up well in any of them. I'm not really sure why that is. Either way, it still looks yummy!

Well, there is another thing checked off my Fall Bucket List for this year! :)

  1. Wow! The pie is so tempting. I am one of those people who loves to eat but I can't cook to save my life!!

    1. You poor thing!! Cooking is one of those things that some love and some hate...and some haven't tried yet so they just don't know if they like it yet. :)


  2. This looks absolutely delicious!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    P.S. If you'd like to participate in another party this weekend, we're having a party over at our corner of the blogosphere and would be honored if you joined! :)
