Smells like Fall

Pumpkin, spices, apples...
What smells remind you of autumn?

I don't know exactly what it is, maybe it's the chill in the air or knowing that I'll be spending much more time inside the house, but Fall makes me want to bake. A Lot!

My kitchen smells just heavenly right now! I made an apple pie and it is in the oven baking right now. The smell of apple pie in the oven just screams fall to me.
So while I'm waiting for the pie to finish, I decided to return to my blog and ask a few questions to fellow bakers out there.
  • When making your own pie crust, do you prefer to use only butter, only shortening, or a mixture of both?
  • What type of apples do you prefer to use in apple pies and crisps?
  • What's your favorite fall recipe? Share yours here.

For this pie, I used a flaky, butter crust and macintosh apples. Can't wait to eat it, with a big scoop of French Vanilla ice cream.

I use Tenderflake to make my pie crusts, and roll them quite thin.
Will look for my favorite fall recipe and come back.
