FAUX APPLE PIE

Posted by


I was really headed toward an old fashioned apple pie. The apple varieties in the farmers markets are peaking right now so I purchased a combo of sweet and tart apples (love the Black Twig). Plans had it for dessert Saturday after butternut squash risotto, roast pork loin and green salad but I pooped out before getting to dessert which is why its good to have a stash of quality chocolate bars in order to satisfy the hoards. Needles to say, the guys were asking all day about the pie but--whatever, it just wasn't happening. Sunday am--awoke to a beautiful day and prepped those apples for a proper pie dessert but, once again got distracted, busy--you know the drill so, I switched gears to an apple crisp, pictured above, recipe from MH.

I can honestly say dessert was enjoyed with the same gusto a pie might've been minus the beauty of a perfect slice. Vanilla ice-cream topped it for the great texture combo crisp as the topping included toasted oats etc with a salty/sweet combo mixture. So, pastry-phobes or time-lackers: go for the faux pie if need be. Once in the mouth the whole apple thing is the same. BTW, I DO actually go a night w/out pork: the crisp was proceeded by leftover risotto cakes, spicy steamed clams, and oven-roasted brussel sprouts (had to resist adding smoked pork).
Heading out for another week of touring, Philly, D.C., WV--check the tour sched and please come say hi should we be in your back yard.
