With a week to go until Thanksgiving, I ran into a site that showed cinnamon roll crust apple pie.
In fact, it was just a process by which the pie crust is sprinkled with cinnamon, cut into slices, then pressed and rolled back together to have a swirl pattern.
Looks easy enough. It won’t be as good as my sister’s apple pie but it could be a thing. And with Mexican food on the dinner menu that might, why not a little something all-American for dessert?
So anyway, yeah.
It doesn’t roll together as nice and prettily as they imply.
It tears and shreds.
And then the apples weren’t enough. I mean it was full of course but it wasn’t the right apple to crust ratio. So: disappointing.
Alas, dessert was a bit of a fail.
Oh well. I’ll stick to strudel in future, and leave the apple pies to my sister. She has the knack.
And with just a few days to Thanksgiving, her apple pies are likely to be on the menu.
Extra reasons to be thankful!
