OK, you liked the Strawberry, its Memorial Day gotta have something sweet to finish the meal. What better than apple pie. In case you don't know me, I am not big on boxes or cans, or freezer premade.

I made the pie last night so it would be ready today. When I made my coffee this morning, I noticed a mouse had cut out a big slice of my pie. Probably had it with coffee. I must have scared the mouse cause it forgot about the ice cream in the freezer. Or maybe just too hungry.

Those spots that look like buggs in the pie, well that's what I would tell my nephew anyway, those are cranberries. I gotta tell you I have tried caramel apple, bacon apple, pecan apple, etc etc... But I just can't top those dang cranberries. Its like peas and carrots! Apples and cranberries!

A couple of scoops of Bluebell Golden Vanilla on top would be right smart!

Victor, I like Bluebell "French Vanilla" on pies, but since the reorganization with Mr. Bass they only make it 1 month a year. I have a couple of cartons in the freezer. LOL Have you tried Bluebells "Coffee" ice cream. Thats pretty good stuff too.

I’m not a huge apple pie sort (cherry and raspberry is where my heart skips a beat) but gawd almighty that crust looks amazing. Like it’d break like glass.

Awesome job!
Thank you, wish I could say I could just whip those out everytime, but that ain't true....LOL I am getting better at it though.

Yeah, I'd love to be that mouse! I'm a pie kind of guy. Chocolate, Danish, cheese cake... Give me pie! Looks Awesome to me!!! Put on any brand's 12-15% butterfat ice cream (as a UP'er, Jilberts comes to mind) and I'm in heaven!

I love apple pie, Kev. Its one of my favorites. Funny thing is, I have Craisins with my supper every night (mix them in with the veggies, but I never thought to add them to Apple Pie. Go figure.
POINT for the idea and a beautiful pie.
