  1. Thanks for the recipe Cathie! It looks like it would be easy to make and your pic looks yummy!
    Apple has always been my favorite pie. Did you just bake it tonight for Easter dessert?

  2. Yes! This will be our Easter apple pie. We are going on a family potluck picnic. I bought some vanilla and caramel ice cream to go with the pie. I just hope it does not melt in the cooler.

  3. As I type this, you probably have had your picnic. Sounds like a great way to spend Easter with your family. Hope you had a great time!
