    DO YOU REQUIRE PIE, the kind of pie that comes with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, and cinnamon inside, and large hunks of soft, cooked-long, oh-so-toothsome apples drizzling out? Oak Glen understands. Do you need cider doughnuts, the sort of pastries that can be eating straight from a sugar-dusted bag, the kind of treat that makes you feel like everything is going to work out and your worries are for naught?

Apple Season in Oak Glen is on through Sunday, Nov. 26.
