If you’re like me, you’re still thinking about what to serve on Christmas and you’re in need of stocking gifts.

I love the looks (and taste) of this Christmas Apple Pie. I’ve taken my original recipe and spiced it up a bit with a berry jelly, and a few Christmas cookie cutters.

But, first I want to show you this knife sharpener, which will fit perfectly in a stocking for your favorite cook.

How to Make a Beautiful Christmas Apple Pie

When I make an apple pie, I really like to play around with the dough and make the dessert look really special. All you need for this is Christmas Tree cookie cutters, and a bit of bright red jam or jelly. You could even sprinkle colored sugar on the top.
