Dutch Apple Pie

Friday, September 21, 2012

Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by on this bakefest Friday. In the spirit of fall arriving, I thought I would share my (new) favourite dessert. A combination of warm, delicious apple pie fused together with the sweetness of an apple crisp -- a dutch apple pie! Let me give you a sneak peek into this process.

My mixing bowl looked like this...

 Do I have your mouth watering yet?

This recipe is so yummy, I would highly recommend you skip the ol' pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving this year and serve this warm dutch apple pie instead. Believe me, you will be thanked! :) Enjoy!
