What’s for dessert – Caramel Crumble Apple Pie

One of our favourite fall family traditions is going apple picking! I had a Pioneer Woman’s Perfect Pie Crust in my freezer, so apple pie seemed like the right thing to do. Since I only had one pie crust and didn’t want to make another for a lattice crust, I used the crumble from my apple crisp recipe to top it, and then to take it over the edge I poured what was left of a jar of homemade salted caramel sauce over the crumble when it came out of the oven.

I’m also a bit of a recipe book junkie, so I couldn’t say no when I was given the opportunity to review Mary Rolph Lamontagne’s EATS: Enjoy All The Seconds. “Wanting to eat diverse meals but not wanting to waste leftovers are no longer mutually exclusive,” said Mary Rolph Lamontagne. “I wanted to show Read more […]
