So sorry if you’ve been planning on starting a diet, or are working hard at eliminating sweets and other reasons to live from your life. If you’re committed to this, and have little to no will power, then we suggest you stop reading now, and head on over here. Quickly. If you’re pretty sure that you can keep reading, for interests sake, and yet remain committed to your new ways, then we suggest you skim this post and try to avoid the photos. If you feel yourself weakening, hurry on over here. If however, you have decided that diets are for duds, and that life is too short to avoid deliciousness, have we got a treat for you!
There is something about pie which just makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside. The almost meditative act of rolling out the crust, the smell of the pie in the oven, and the sight of the filling bubbling out through the vents on the top crust are enough to make us swoon. Apple pies are a particular favourite because they are appreciated by so many; who doesn’t love a classic apple pie? (If you answered “I don’t” to this question, please send us a private message so that we can talk about it). Although we love baking pies, and have a pretty fail-proof pie crust recipe and technique, sometimes we don’t have the time to get involved in pastry making. So when time is limited but we can’t shake the need for a dessert with a warm apple filling, we get creative…and that’s how this recipe came to be.
