The summer has flown by and I sadly have not made it one campfire or fire-pit all season! While truthfully my desire to sit fireside has been damped by all the smoke in the air from the devastating BC fires, I’ve sure missed enjoying a s’more or two! So, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands this week with a S’mores Pie – no fire necessary. Well, no open fires that is, you’ll need a kitchen torch to flame the meringue 😉
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!
Is there anything better than a warm slice of apple pie on a cool winters day? And a homemade pie at that! Nope. I didn’t think so!
In honor of National Pie Day, I thought I would make Apple Pie – for the first time ever! I know, how is that possible?! With all the baking I do, I’m not sure how I’ve never made an apple pie. Perhaps, I had a sense of the patience and time it required and just never felt confident enough to tackle it.
Despite the lack of an incredible wave of confidence, I felt inspired to whip up an apple pie this morning, so I went with it.
