Amish Vanilla Pie

By Sarah

Ingredient of the week: VANILLA I thought about all the items that I could make with vanilla. Vanilla buttercream, vanilla ice cream, vanilla pudding...the list could go on and on. Then my mind settled on pie. Pie is one of my favorite desserts. I love pie even more than I love icing, which says a lot my love of pie.

Needless to say, if you are a pie fan like me, you have to try this recipe. I loved how it looks with the sugary crumbs on top. This pie will probably be going home with me for Thanksgiving.
