We took a little trip to a local orchard–one of my favorite fall traditions! We picked up 3 different varieties of apples, some cider, and a big ol’ pumpkin. In the second half of the video I show you how I put together one of the best pies ever–Caramel Crunch Apple Pie! Trust me, it’s good! The recipe is one that Tony and I put together in our first year of marriage up on the shores of Lake Superior. Enjoy! (Recipe below the video.)
