My family goes a little crazy with pies at Thanksgiving. We usually have at least a half-dozen pies, sometimes up to a dozen. This is a favorite that is really easy to make and usually is eaten quickly. Creamy Apple Pie 2 and one-half tablespoons all-purpose flour One-half teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg One-fourth teaspoon salt Three-fourths cup sugar One unbeaten egg One cup sour cream One and one-half teaspoons vanilla Two cups Granny Smith apples (diced and peeled, about 4 apples) 2 unbaked 9-inch pie shells
November marks my favorite time of year when the cooler temperatures roll in, the days get shorter, and the holidays approach.

During the stop the officer noticed a clear bag filled with fresh meat in the vehicle. The driver said it was venison. The bag had no name, license number or date on it.
