I have stopped by her blog numerous times but it wasn't until last week when we were away on vacation and visiting some family that I had a chance to look through her cookbooks!! oh my goodness!! They are amazing. And her photography is throughout her cookbooks. I'm definitely asking for a book for christmas because I didn't want to put them down. Her writing is so inviting and captivating that I just didn't want to stop reading.
So the other day I was looking through some recipes on her site and came across this one called "Dreamy Apply Pie". My folks were coming over for dinner and I wanted to make a dessert so I decided to make this.
Now beware, this is not your typical apple pie. This is intoxication-divine in a pie plate!!! Oh my!
Here's my pie.
|My daughter could hardly wait for the pie to cool off just a bit. She was so excited to eat a piece!|
I usually make my own pie crust but I thought I'd try out the recipe that Ree raved about and I'm glad I did because it was wonderful. (thanks Sylvia!)
I also made the "Hard Sauce" which was incredible. (yes, I confess, I licked the spoon many times. Oh who am I kidding ... I poked my finger in that bowl over & over!) Trust me ... you'll wanna put this on everything!!
|(Ree's may have looked smoother & swirly-like but I'm pretty sure that it tasted the same!!)|
So, I'm putting this on my wish list for Christmas.
(keeping my fingers crossed ... although I might have to find it before then! LOL!)
