Recipes as American as Apple Pie

June 24, 2014

Apple Pie, in all its hot-out-of-the-oven glory, is considered one the most prominent icons for quintessential American life. While there may be nothing quite so American as apple pie, gathering your friends and family to celebrate Independence Day with a classic cookout may just be a close second to those hot and gooey baked apples in their crispy pie shell.

From the classic grill-ables to summer salads to finger-licking desserts, these recipes will have you seeing stars (and stripes) and saying “God bless America!” Apple pie included, of course.
