It’s 2 days away. You know, the day when it’s socially acceptable to stuff your face with everything and then keep eating some more until you can’t breath. It’s what Thanksgiving is all about! Overeating. 🙂
So we had a potluck at work and one word: Apple pie. Apple pie everywhere. It’s like everyone who didn’t originally sign up decided to just go and grab an apple pie. We still have some leftovers in the fridge. but. I. just. can’t. look at another pie ever again.
It reminded me of this recipe that I made a few weeks back. Remember the Easiest Mini French Apple Tarts? There’s a video at the bottom of that recipe, check it out. Those things bake in just 15 minutes! WHAAA?!
So when I made those, I used a store bought pie crust. The box came with 2 crusts. What did I do with the 2nd crust? Easy French Apple Tart. 😉
After the first bite, my husband and I looked at each other with eyes wide open. It was a beautiful bonding moment. We both knew exactly how we both felt yet no words were said. It’s funny how eyes can speak more powerfully at times. Our tongues were way too busy anyway. They didn’t want to separate from that sweetness, tartness and perfectly browned crust.
This will get you saying apple pie, shmapple pie! Make this Easy French Apple Tart instead! 😉
