Apple Butter Pie with Gingersnap Crust

The sweetness of apple butter married with the crunch of gingersnaps makes this simple pie perfect for the holiday season!

Have you started your holiday shopping? If you have can do you do mine? I am always last minute with these types of things – I admire people who shop all year round, finishing up before the cold weather heads our way.  It is the one area of my life that I am neither punctual or organized.  But that is okay because I will just make pie and share with you fancy wrapping paper people!  Apple butter is a favorite of mine, homemade or store-bought.  I’ve used on biscuits, toast, or a spoonful snack late at night, but decided this time to make it into a simple and delicious dessert.  Crush the gingersnap cookies (I found them at Trader Joes) add some butter and whisk and you are almost there!  So tis the season to twinkling lights, hot cocoa, and Apple Butter Pie with Gingersnap Crust….
