Easy and Delicious Apple Pie - How to make an Apple Pie

I crave pie, often. I especially crave pie during apple season. There’s just something comforting about an apple pie, wouldn’t you agree? The thing is, I used to just buy my pies. Yep, I didn’t make pies. Why? Because for some reason making pie crusts turns me off. I’m certain I’m not the only one who avoids making pie crust. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean I can’t make a delicious apple pie. Which means, you can too! I started buying pie crusts and just make my own filling.

Frozen Chocolate Mocha Cheesecake Recipe - Absolutely DELICIOUS Cheesecake

I’m a HUGE cheesecake lover. Whenever I go to a restaurant and there’s cheesecake on the dessert card, there’s no doubt that I will order it. I like every kind of cheesecake, from fruit to chocolate. I remember YEARS ago my mother made a Frozen Chocolate Mocha Cheesecake for my birthday. It looked really yummy, but the title “cheesecake” really turned me off. I kept asking her if it was going to taste like cheese. And wondered why someone would want to eat a cake made of cheese. Just sounded “icky”.
