We’re days away from Thanksgiving here in Canada, which only means one thing for me – pie! Year after year, I am in charge of the pie for Thanksgiving dinner, which if you’ve followed along for any amount of time, probably won’t come as a surprise. A quick search of the word ‘pie’ on the blog brings up many options – this pumpkin pie with a twist and the prettiest peach pie, are probably two of my favorites. And while I love all things pumpkin at this time of year, inspired by my peach pie, I decided to go with a Maple Bourbon Apple Rose Pie for this years Thanksgiving dinner. Try saying that three times fast!
Mondays that feel like Sundays are meant for baking. And while there’s a glimmer of fall’s crispness in the air, it still feels like summer around here. So to celebrate Labour Day I decided to make the prettiest peach pie, if I do say so myself!
Due to a late start to the Okanagan growing season this year, there is an abundance of fresh, juicy peaches. Hot temps and peaches galore, make this pie totally seasonally appropriate!
In keeping with the Moroccan theme of the week, (click here to read about my Moroccan inspired outdoor movie night), today’s recipe pays homage to the French influence in Moroccan cooking. Despite the short lived colonization of Morocco, France’s influence on the country’s food remains. And this Apricot Lavender Cake is quintessentially French in flavour.
