I thought the recipe was super easy. My Vitamix blender definitely helped, and you may want to use a food processor if you don’t have a high-powered blender.

All of the ingredients smelled and looked like fall…

The pictures of the recipe on ohsheglows.com inspired me not only to make this yumminess, but also to buy one of those handy apple-slicers. I already don’t want to remember what life was like before this thing.
