Gravenstein Apple Pie

Updated: Dec 6, 2022

A wonderful way to top off the Thanksgiving feast is with an incredible Gravenstein apple pie! One of our favorites is made with Gravensteins that grow in our orchard. Of course, you can use other apples for baking, but Gravenstein is best due to their crisp, juicy, and tart flavor. The full recipe is below and have a wonderful Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
