I have never been able to make a good pie crust, so I designed this instead.
MUCH EASIER!
I have used white, yellow or butter cake mix and just added extra spices to the batter.

I have this lovely apple corer/peeler. This amazing tool makes dealing with peeling and coring apples SO much easier. True, it's not needed, but it LOVELY to use. Plus, it makes these darling, pretty strands of apple peels that I could've taken a million pictures of, as the textures are great and intriguing.
