I think I might try this one out over the weekend when Larry is home to get some nice and warm from the oven. Have to make sure I get some homemade style vanilla ice cream to have with it.

I am not a pie eater or maker. When I get a hankering for something like that I will peel and cut up an apple, throw it in a frying pan with butter, sprinkle cinnamon sugar (I always have a jar of it on the counter next to the toaster) on it and dump it all over ice cream.
