It’s that time of year when the weather is crisp and so are the apples. My neighbors brought me a big bag of them last week and I’ve been enjoying them to no end. You just can’t get apples this sweet at the grocery store. And while I’ve been just eating them raw, I’ve had this nagging urge to make an apple pie. Well, this picture has just pushed that urge over the top. This is a must-try recipe.

I wrote once before about bacon apple pie, but this bacon lattice work really takes the cake…er, pie. You can find the full recipe, more photos and a great backstory over at EliCooks. I’ve been toying around with adding apple pie to my Thanksgiving menu, since for some odd reason not everyone I know LOVES pumpkin pie the way I do. But I don’t know…is it too much to have bacon cinnamon rolls for breakfast, bacon in the green beans AND bacon in the pie?
