Today’s recipe is a yummy one! Apple pie is such a comforting dessert. For many, it brings back memories of when mom used to bake for the family.
Susan of Baking with Susan is hosting today’s recipe. Please stop by Susan’s wonderful blog to see the recipe.
This recipe originates from the book The Sweet Melissa Baking Book listed on page 156-157.
There is a choice of two types of dough recipes to use: I used the Flaky Pie Dough.
Flaky Pie Dough - Page 137
All-Butter Pie Dough - Page 140
I thought I’d try something a little different. I came across a blog which showed how to make Pie Pops.
Luxirare shows her idea of making Pie Pops. It’s a great read.
Bakerella also shows how to make Pie Pops and it's really great too! Check it out!
-Lollipop shapes instead of a pie.
So, I’m off to the kitchen to bake...here were some of my variations:
-Diced and cooked the apples till tender which was used as filling.
Note: When making the caramel, it is important not to overcook it. My caramel did not burn, but the cook time should have been less. The cooking process continued even after I took it off the stove. I think it would have been useful if the recipe indicated a temperature limit for the caramel.
What’s Going On?
Do you post your food photography on any of these websites?
It’s fun to see when your own photos make it to the website. Right?
The only hiccup I see with these sites is that it takes some time for photos to get on the site at times. Oh well, such is life.
What’s one of YOUR favorite baking tools?
I love my wisk…especially the mini wisk.
How about you?
