Autumn Apple Pie - The Best Apple Pie Recipe Ever!

This Pie Filling.

This Dough.

This Pie Crust Cutter Set.

Ever since I first tried the Spiced Apple Pie Recipe from Martha Stewart, I knew I would never make another type of apple pie filling again. It is so. good. It combines the apples with lemon juice, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and a little bit of flour, and it is unbelievable. The texture is perfect. In fact, I recommend making extra filling so you can nibble on some as you are making your pies. It is that good! 

I'm sure the recipe is amazing when made verbatim, but I've made a few adjustments to my own taste.

Indigo Dye

I went a little 'Maria Von Trapp' and indigo dyed some old curtain scraps that I've had on hand for months. While I've done indigo dyeing several times before, this was my first attempt without a special kit. As you can see from the picture above, the project was a success! I will share a full tutorial soon, but I couldn't 'resist' sharing a sneak peak now!
