Apple Pie FINAL

You know how much I LOVE candles! I am super excited about American Home by Yankee Candle® collection, available at Walmart. Mark your calendar they will be in store August 1st 2015 they will be located in the  Home and Candle section of Walmart.

What is your favorite candle fragrance ? I personally love anything with anything with apple – that is why I decided to make an apple pie today. I wanted the fragrance of fresh apples just like the one found with American Home by Yankee Candle® collection.


The candle above inspired my recipe  – Fresh Apple – It’s that very first slice from a crisp red apple, moist and sweet and so fresh it has a little sharpness. Refreshing! I changed it a bit by using Granny Smith apples ( because they are better for apple pie making; however, the recipe reminds me so much of this candle. I cannot wait to buy a few of them and have them in my office. Where do you burn candles?

I am loving the price point as well! The 12oz Medium Apothecary Jar Candles are $10.93 ( which is a great price point) – I am going to make sure to stock up since candles make great gifts for the Holidays. If you are wanting to try many different fragrances of  American Home by Yankee Candle® they have 1.75oz Sampler Votive Candles for $1.43 – these samplers are also great for small gifts.

I cannot wait to try the American Home™ Apple Cinnamon Cider candle


apple pie ingredients

This is the apple pie recipe I have been making for years – I think the first time I made it I was under 10 – it always turns out amazing and full of flavor. My sweet ingredient is a little bit of dark brown sugar ( I love the depth of flavor from it )

Of course I got my dad to help me with the baking – I like to cube my apples – but you can do slices ( whatever rocks your boat)

Once the apples are all cut up you mix all the ingredients together and you are almost done 🙂
