I grew up with strong Southern roots which means almost everyone can cook and we eat apple or sweet potato pie, no exceptions. One Thanksgiving, my grandmother and I decided to go out of our element and buy a frozen pumpkin pie to see what the hype was all about. Since it was zero degrees outside, we decided to leave our Midwest Fall Delicacy in the car to stay cold while we prepared dinner and set up the holiday china. Long story short, the pie melted in the car leaving us to prepare our usual desserts and drive around until the Spring months with our car smelling like Pumpkin Spice.
Moral of the story, Apple Pie is America’s favorite pie for a reason. Don’t believe the hype!
*I still love you PSL lovers*
2020 update: A lot has changed over the years, this is indeed a Pumpkin Spice stan account but I will never forget my roots!
These apple pie cookies are adapted from my grandma’s apple pie or smothered apples recipe. If you’re fancy you can make your own pied dough but I find frozen pie dough rolls very easy to use. The caramel sauce and brown sugar cinnamon sprinkled on top complete all of my favorite Fall favorites. Serve with vanilla bean ice cream for a fun time!
