I love apple anything. Saw this Apple Truffle Elaine from Sunny Simple Life shared on a recent post :





At a recent event, i got to taste Tamarindo Apples from Heavenly Apples

Delicious! They last for days,weeks at a time. Yet, for me they last just a few days.





I love Apple Pies. Totally yummy. Here's a great receipt via Taste Of Home
