Dressing in things that sparkle and sipping chocolate peppermint beverages make cold nights divine.
Eating cookies for dinner? You bet!
I am to three holiday parties in the past week. Not to mention several breakfasts and lunches with my co-workers. I love the fact that these people know how to eat! Our brunch the other day contains Dunkin’ Donuts (I even got the pumpkin one!), cinnamon-peach whole wheat grains French toast (totes great), apple stuffed croissants, sausage egg bake, and three various kinds of breakfast burritos.
It will not be very long until I’m setting sweets at work kitchen. For the time being, I’ll continue to eat my co-workers peanut M&M’s out of her automatic chocolate dispenser. I’ve decided I want a computerized cinnamon roll dispenser.
One more thing that lights up my holidays: Pie. Creamy, sweet, crunchy, dreamy, fruity, nutty, warm, chocolatey! Pie can be all things.
Pie + Booze? Oh my. Let’s devour it!
Have you ever thought about what makes pie thus incredible?
Is it the filling up? The crust? A crumb topping probably? Just a little splash of whiskey? Everybody knows a festive caramel drizzle often adds jazz.
Individually, a cream pie isn’t right without generous amounts of REAL whip cream. Glaciers cream always goes with apple, double the scoop if it’s vanilla bean! The only path to eat pumpkin is if it is warm!
I don’t know why I’m thus obsessed with pie. Maybe it’s the combination of the whole shebang in that adorable triangle shape which makes each bite enchanting. Perhaps it is the exclusive combinations that can be created.
I just realized I said shebang. That’s odd. Growing older means getting weirder.
Maybe you aren’t pie obsessed like me. In fact maybe, you’re much more into cake pops from Starbucks, Dunkin’ donuts, and glitzy chocolates truffles with names you can’t pronounce.
It’s also quite possible you fed up with me talking about pie all the time. I feel you. I obtain it! I get the dependence on frozen Reese’s peanut butter cups which pastry from the small coffee shop. I enjoy these things too.
But! You must know nothing compares to producing pie from nothing and certainly nothing at all better than eating it.
Today is the day you get into pie! Specifically since it offers a little bourbon inside it.
Bourbon is a classic around the holidays. If we’re going to drink it, we would as well consume it too.
You can make this pie.
You’ll see how easy it is… I’m confident in you!
You’ll see how much you love pie… I promise!
You’ll discover you’re love of fruit and booze combinations… I’m sure!

4 large sweet, firm apples (I utilized a mix of Honeycrisp and Granny Smith), cored and thinly sliced
2 mugs of fresh pitted cherries (You can also use frozen, just thaw)
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
pinch of surface nutmeg
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons of Bourbon
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup of butter, slightly softened and trim into small pieces
For the crust I used Paula Deen’s Ideal pie crust It results in two pie crusts, if you want you can always produce another pie, or simply half the formula. Unless you feel like hanging out or are in a hurry, I would recommend the freezing pie crust from Trader Joe’s. If you have any kind of questions regarding where and exactly how to use pork stuffed zucchini boats, you could call us at our website. It is the greatest store-bought crust I’ve had.
Preheat the oven to 400 levels F. In a big dish combine apples, cherries, granulated glucose, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and pinch of nutmeg. Toss collectively well to combine and let sit for 5 minutes to soak within the flavors. Add flour after five minutes and mix to combine.
In a separate dish, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and pecans. Add butter and make use of your fingers to mix until the combination turns into crumbly. Sprinkle generously all around the top of pie
Line a 9 inch deep baking pan with pie crust and pour your apple cherry fruits mix in. Pour two tablespoons of Bourbon on top of the fruit mix and sprinkle a pinch of flour at the top. Next generously sprinkle the crumb topping all around the top. Bake at 400 degrees for quarter-hour. Lower the oven temp to 350 levels F and continue cooking for approximately 40 a few minutes or before pie is certainly bubbling and both crust and topping are golden dark brown. If crust or topping commence to brown prematurely, it is possible to cover with aluminum foil.
When done baking, remove from the oven and let pie cool 20 mins. Serve warm, with vanilla glaciers cream.
