Oh, by the way, if you haven't met our latest family member, please see below this post.
Back to apples. I make quite a few "rustic" apple pies throughout the year. However, there is nothing like a freshly baked, from scratch, apple pie!
I mentioned below (in the post about Teddy) that Teddy was a surprise birthday gift for my husband. One of my hubby's favorite desserts (on occasion) is thee Classic Apple Pie. And, in my helping him celebrate his birthday pretty much all month long, I decided to have another stab at my ICE CREAM MADNESS capers and also make a luscious Vanilla Bean Ice Cream AND a Salted Caramel sauce. Needless to say he was content with just the apple pie a la mode. I, on the other hand, had to guild some lilies and continue the decadent dessert with the addition of yummy caramel sauciness! I so love apples. Happy Birthday, my dear!
