Happy Tuesday Y’all!!
I hope your weekend was fabulous! If you follow along on Instagram, you know that this weekend was our town’s annual Apple Festival. We were super busy with all of the festivities, but I must say, I really enjoyed watching my boys take part in the festival & enjoying all of the activities that I enjoyed growing up! So many memories!
I wanted to share a super easy, super yummy fall dessert with you all today!

Just by looking at the ingredients, I knew it would be something that our family would like. After reading the directions and realizing how quick it would be to make, we decided to give it a whirl! Let me just tell you, we were NOT disappointed! My husband is a huge pumpkin pie fan & he absolutely LOVED this recipe!
