The one thing that screams fall the most is fresh baked apple pies. There's really nothing better than the smell of sweet apples mixed with buttery cinnamon in the air.
It brings most of us back to our childhoods when our moms or grandma's would bake apple pie for Thanksgiving or Rosh Hashanah dinner and we'd be drooling until we finally got to sneak a little snitch while they weren't looking.
