Recently I had an extensive conversation with some of the IGGPPC staff about pie and our love for pie. Ontario doesn't really have pie restaurants or shops. Some restaurants serve different types of pie as part of their dessert selection but none are really known for pie. This makes me sad and makes me want to open up my own Pie Hole!
Of course after our conversation I had to make a pie. So I used what I had on hand... graham cracker crumbs, butter, apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and leftover caramel sauce.
I made my graham cracker crust and let it cool. Once it cooled down a bit and hardened, I added caramel sauce and attempted to spread it over the crust (I say attempted since it was so thick!).
Next, I made my apple filling.... peeled and cut apples, water, sugar, and a bit of corn starch to thicken it up. Then I sprinkled some cinnamon and nutmeg in the apple mixture as it softened.
Once it was done, I poured the apple mixture into the pie crust and let it cool for a few hours.
It was SO good and definitely fulfilled my pie craving!
I also made up some cookies recently for Adam. Again, I used what I had on hand and tried to make them Christmas-y. I came up with White Chocolate-Cranberry-Oatmeal cookies (get it? red and white?!?). They turned out super soft and I may be addicted to them...
I have two days off starting tomorrow so I'm going to make up some more Christmas cookies. I have lots of ideas, but we'll see how much I actually get done!
