One thing my husband loves for me to make for him is homemade apple pie! Once the fresh apples starting hitting the stores, it becomes a request that I hear often. My two youngest kids are just as much an apple pie vulture as he is for it. I had a delicious apple pie recipe but lost it. It’s a good thing I did because I have since found an apple pie recipe that is even more mouth-watering good than the first one. I hope your family likes it too.

Making this easy southern apple pie recipe will make your family eager to dive into this favorite summer dessert. The apple pie filling recipe is what sends it to the next level.
