In families, many of us have a role to play. I’m the dessert girl. And hence–through our three Thanksivings–I have made the same number of desserts.
Extended family on Mom’s side always asks for Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake, so I made that Thursday for lunch. Friday was Vore’s birthday. I made Almond Butter Blondie Cake for his family’s celebration, serving it with candles. And for today’s gathering at my parent’s house, I decided on apple pie, a favorite of my dad’s.
Would you believe I’ve never made apple pie before? A piece of Americana that I’ve never cooked on my own! Tragedy.
Given that this was a new venture for me, I thought it best to follow a trusted recipe. I chose Organic Valley’s Caramel Apple Pie. I’m pleased to say my furry little sous chef and I turned out a pretty American classic. I recorded the adventure in photos. Enjoy!
