Eating seasonally – through pie: Apple

Apple pie - blondewalk

Nothing says autumn like an apple pie. All summer long, we fill our ovens with various fruit pies and we have to say, we are more than excited for the outdoor temperatures to drop to enjoy a warm apple dessert. For us, apple is the simplest pie to make as it’s the one we make most often. Sweet granny-smith apples mixed with cinnamon and brown sugar, baked in a flaky crust and topped with ice cream is arguably one of the most comforting desserts. Don’t forget to share photos on Instagram of the pies you’re making with the hashtag #bwpiechallenge. We can’t wait to see your beautiful creations.
