Caramel Apple Pie

Dessert, Happiness is homemade, Holidays, Recipes

This is not your classic American pie —- a caramel apple pie with holiday cheer, rum! I couldn’t help but smile while simmering the apple ingredients together. Every room filled with this wonderful aroma. I was eager to try Williams-Sonoma’s salted caramel apple pie recipe.  Let me state the recipe does not call for rum but it should, Lol. The flavors are on point and scrump-a-licious! The salted caramel sauce was purchased on sale and it’s amazing! I’m not just saying that. For those non-sweet n’ salty people, do not let the salted caramel sauce fool you. It is delightfully sweet. 

I use Allrecipes buttery pie crust and replace regular butter with Irish butter. My apologies about the yellow tone photo as I forgot to photograph prior to egg wash. 

Happy Holidays! #baketheworldabetterplace #applelicious

Got cake? …Fried cheesecake

Dessert, Restaurant Foodie

Hi guys! Dessert lovers, I wanted to share this scrumptious find with you. This is the first fried dessert I’ve tasted and let me tell you…made me want to dance! It’s that good. 

Slightly melted ice cream, drizzled caramel, creamy inside with a perfect crunch on the outside. Pretty sure I was making yummy noises and dancing in my seat. 

Several people have shared fried dessert stories over the years and wondered why someone would fry an already sweet treat?… Now I get it! #happydance
