Wise Men

Fall is my favorite time of year. I loved taking my kids to the apple orchards in the fall to pick apples, eat apple doughnuts and drink apple cider. There are so many wonderful flavors of apples. My two favorite varieties are Empire and Honey Crisp. What is your favorite? My two cards look like someone was busy picking apples. I wonder if they will be made into pies, sauce, or just washed and chilled. One of the new recipies I want to try this fall is individual apple pies where you bake the pie in the individual apples. Gotta love pintrest. I hope you had a great time with this montn's hop.
