Mums Apple Pie

Hey everybody,

Long time since I posted something, but I’ve been crazy busy with work. But no worries, this weekend is Easter weekend and I’m planning to make a lovely dinner. So you’re up for some killer recipes next week!

For now, my Mums apple pie recipe. I bought way to many apples for me to eat on my own, so what better way to enjoy them by baking an apple pie. This pie is super easy to make and oh so delicious. The super crunchy crust with the sweet and moist inside of apples is awesome. Seriously, go make it!
