Good Eats | Apple Pie Bake

With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, this gal’s kitchen is turning into a full-on baking machine… the sweet tooth is in full force these days and I’m eyeing ALL the yummy desserts for all our holiday get togethers! I found this easy peasy Apple Pie Bake recipe via Pinterest and whipped it up last week when I hosted bunco at my house.

Seriously delish, great for a group gatherings because it easily feeds 6-8 friends and of course we added vanilla ice cream because EVERYTHING is better a la mode:
