What Can Call Out Autumn More than Fresh Apple Pies?

My girl and her friend came home from school one day this week and decided it was time to peel apples and make pastry. So 2 boxes of fresh apples later, we have a freezer full of pies. The girls are getting so great in the kitchen that help is always appreciated, although the help seems to disappear come clean up time. Home Ec. class is teaching them a lot and they do get marked on how well they clean up at school, so I know they are good at it. Between the 2 of them and my boy, they peeled all the apples.



The best part is sneaking those handfuls of peeled and sliced, sugared and cinnamoned appley goodness. Right Jacob?

A few minis to use up the last of the dough.... Yummmm.. We each got our own pie for dessert.


Someone else was hanging around getting in the way and scooping up morsels of goodness...

Yum ... again, I wish we were neighbors. I'd love to sample the pies, but even more, I'd love to come over and make pies with you!
