A Taste of Fall

The cooler weather always makes me want to bake so I decided to make an apple pie. I do not bake pies that often and didn't have a recipe so I did a little hunting online, found a basic recipe and tweaked it just a bit. And I cheated and used the store bought pillsbury crusts. I've always heard the crust is the hardest part of making a pie so if I can get a decent one at the store and not stress about it why not? But someday I'm going to try making the crust from scratch.

I made homemade vanilla ice cream to go with it too. And since I had already crossed the quadruple digit calorie mark I added cool whip too. I love cool whip especially now that it comes in a can. MMM..tastes just like fall.

i dont even think its cheating if you buy the whole pie already made from the store and pass it off as your own, must be my jewish side. lol
