Apple Crumble Pie

So whenever someone asks me what my best/favorite recipe I always say my apple crumble pie. Why it took me almost 2 years to get it on my site? Yeah, I don’t know, but I do know that you can get it a printed copy of it on a towel and isn’t that awesome? I think I may have a bit too much butter and it’s a tad bit spicier on the towel, so adjust as needed. Also, you can also get my pal Anna’s chocolate chip cookie recipe and other locals delicious recipes.

This pie is a staple in my family for the 4th of July and Thanksgiving. And I hope it can become a part of your holidays as well!
