What more could one ask for than a triple apple rum raisin pie to top off your holiday dinner? Not much I say…’cept maybe some whip cream of course. Mmmmm…. How can you beat hot baked raisins soaked in rum? And layers of sweet Golden delicious and tart McIntosh apples coated in brown sugar and butter?
Being that I am a self-proclaimed pie eating addict, I do formally declare THIS to the world’s best apple pie recipe ever!
It’s that time of year again people! Time for gum drop walkways, candy cane fences, and cinnamon graham shingles.
While my first effort with gingerbread house building last year didn’t go exactly as planned, it certainly was memorable and resulted in one extremely large edible dog house (finally consumed amongst a whirlwind orgy of ravenous New Year’s Eve partiers). The poor marshmallow poodles never knew what hit them.
In celebration of holiday sugar-highs I’ve decided to showcase a series of posts on Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about creating your own gingerbread homes. From plans and patterns to decorating ideas, and maybe even a special gingerbread trick or two.
Best wishes to all of you for a love filled Thanksgiving gathering.
