Caramel Apple Pie


Happy Turkey Day everyone!

Last night I spent quite a bit of time putting together this pie.


After work I took the time to go grocery shopping (no small feat) for all the ingredients for this pie.

And even though I lacked some of the equipment needed (candy thermometer).

I dove head first into this pie.

Alex and I contemplated on whether or not to just eat the pie last night or save it for the family Thanksgiving celebration.

Okay, I have a confession. I don't like Apple Pie, but it's Alex's favorite.

And he won the contemplation.

We dug into the pie and the family got none.

I even had a piece, well I did make it after all.

I still don't like apple pie. But this one was not bad.
