    I absolutely love french apple pie. It’s become a holiday staple around my house. There is never a piece left whenever my mother makes it 🙂

    Cinnamon Rolls! Gigantic, gooey, won’t-fit-into-my-jeans-after-this tastey cinnamon rolls. It’s a tradition.

    What makes French Apple Pie different from normal apple pie? Is it like a Tarte Tatin?

    Yes, it has more of a tarte look to it. Here is a really accurate, and delicious picture!
