What is it about cold weather that makes us crave comfort food? I’m thinking we are somewhat like bears and think we need to eat in order to fatten up during winter hibernation!! With fruits being so hard to come by in the winter one of the best winter desserts is a hot apple pie!! Here’s a recipe that is sure to hit the spot, and it is cooked in my favorite a cast iron skillet!! Enjoy!!
