With all of the apples we picked on Sunday at the Apple Farm in Fairfield, I need to get some good use out of them! I have always been envious of people who make the apple pies at the fairs that win the blue ribbons. I don't believe I'll ever be creative enough to make such a beautiful looking pie but at least mine tastes good!
