Whelp, thats a quick tour around here…can’t wait to break out the Christmas decor. I’ve been eyeing some things at Target already like this tray, these sweet little plates, and this cookie jar.

brown butter bourbon apple pie

Our local farmer’s market hosts seasonal fruit pie contests, you can see the pies I entered here and here. Before I realized I’d be out of town for the apple pie contest I was thinking about how to capture the judges attention with something a little different. JPS had such a good idea of just swapping peaches for apples…I did a little research and found a similar pie here and I used their guidance on spices for the apples but kept my own method for using brown butter bourbon and brown butter streusel because it’s simply divine.

What makes this pie SO AMAZING is that it isn’t overly sweet. It has a lot of rich flavor but not too much cinnamon or sugar just a really satisfying piece of apple pie. JPS doesn’t claim to like sweets although he gobbles up any cookies I make…but he can’t stop raving about this pie! If a pie can win him over, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser at your house!
