This Sweet and Simple Apple Pie is the way to go when you're figuring out what to make for your Thanksgiving desserts. We usually like to make at least two pies in my family, so it's nice to have options. Apple is is an obvious choice after pumpkin, and the simpler the recipe, the better because after all your baking is done, you can spend more time with your family.
