Ahh, fall. Fabulous fruits and weather cool enough to bake! I love being able to make things that are a-tasty b-easy enough that I don't feel like I am sacrificing my weekend to them and c- capable of making my house smell amazing!

Two of my fall faves are apples and pomegranates. There are lots of apple pie recipes out there, but I wanted something ... more. So, I played around with this recipe for apple pie, and came up with pomegranate apple pie!

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:

>   6 cups thinly sliced apples (for me this was 2 small and two large)
>   1/2 cup granulated sugar
>   1/4 cup flour
>   1/4 packed brown sugar
>   1/2 tsp cinnamon
>   1/4 tsp nutmeg
>   dash or two of allspice
>   dash of powdered ginger (not pictured)
>   1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
>   1 pie crust
>   topping (either pie crust or crumble)
>   1 tablespoon butter
>   juice of one pomegranate (since I use fresh juice I never measure this ... 1/2 to 3/4 cup of store bought is probably plenty)

Need an easy from scratch pie crust? Check out my press-in pie crust 'ible.
Need an easy crumble topping? Check out my cinnamony crumble 'ible.
Need to know how to peel and juice a pomegranate? Gotcha covered there, too.

If you prefer a more traditional home made pie crust, this page looks helpful. I can't speak for accuracy or awesomeness of the recipes as I have not tried them, but it looks straightforward if you feel up to that sort of thing.

You will need a large-ish mixing bowl to combine your ingredients, and of course measuring spoons & cups and a sharp knife & cutting board.

You will be pre-heating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, but not yet.
