With the 4th of July celebration around the corner, what could be more American than good ol’ apple pie. This is one of our family’s favorite desserts. Some of us like it alone, some of us like it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and some of us like it topped with whipped cream or caramel sauce. No matter what your sweet tooth desires, I’m sure you would prefer it homemade. Trust me, it is easy to make! Grandpa Dwight loves apple pie and decided one day to show Jack just how easy it is!
