This is the season for apple picking! If your kids are anything like mine, they pack their bags full of those juicy apples, and you are left with the task of figuring out what to do with all of them!

Here’s a recipe, that I am rating on Taste of Home this month! It’s Caramelized Apple Hand Pies! These were a huge hit with my family. I wrapped the pies in fall napkins, and we sat around the fire pit enjoying them on a beautiful fall afternoon! The kids loved having their own pies, and the adults loved the flavor. I think these hand held goodies would be great for fall gatherings, and parties! Here’s my adaption of the recipe, and a link to the original:
