    This brown bag apple pie is so easy and is absolutely delicious. My friend brought this apple crumble pie to my home last year for Thanksgiving dinner and I knew I needed to get the recipe to share with you. This easy apple pie recipe comes from her grandma and tastes like the most wonderful homemade apple dessert.

    We drizzled a little salted caramel and added vanilla ice cream on top. Seriously divine and the crumb topping is amazing. This brown bag apple pie is perfect for anyone to make. The brown bag helps seal in the all yummy juices and flavors. It’s pretty simple (as far as pie making goes) to make and turns out amazing every time!
