Brown Bag Apple Pie

Brown Bag Apple PieThis is the ultimate apple pie!  It’s flavor beats all others!  I have many people tell me they don’t care for apple pie and then change their mind after eating a slice of this beauty!  There is something about baking it inside a brown paper bag that makes it taste so good!  Be sure to serve it with organic vanilla ice cream!

  1. I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was absolutely delicious! I make an apple pie every year and I was ready to give up this year and buy one because it just never turns out quite right. This recipe was so delicious! It will now be my go-to every Thanksgiving. Thank you!
