Do you like to share? I mean, we all know we are supposed to, but do you like it, enjoy it, thrive from it? Deep thoughts…
One thing I LOVE LOVE LOVE to share is recipes (you couldn’t guess?!?) Not only do I love to share mine with you, but I love to have recipes shared with me. It is so fun to try something new in the kitchen, especially if the recipe has come from a friend! The Apple Pie Dip featured on the blog today is a recipe my dear friend Molly shared with me a few years back. I don’t remember where she got it, I think maybe from a magazine or something (but I could be totally wrong, it was a few babies ago!) but as far as I’m concerned it is her recipe. She shared it with me after making it for a snack one fall day when our kids were playing together, I have loved it ever since! Sharing favorite flavors is such a wonderful thing, who do you like to share recipes with?
Apple pie is comforting, delicious, and reminds me of fall and special times with family and friends. I am blessed to live in the great apple state of Washington and this time of year we have every kind of apple, everywhere we look! I love all the things you can make with apples, some simple, others more complex, sweet and savory, I love it all. This dip has the flavor of pie, but with way less work. The apples are peeled, diced, mixed, and finally baked, what comes out is a little piece of flavor heaven!
I love using granny smith apples in this dip, but really any type will do. I like the tartness with the sweet sauce, but make it with whatever you have on hand, you won’t be sorry! This is great as an afternoon snack, an appetizer for Thanksgiving or a holiday party, a wonderful filling for crepes, and perfect when served with cinnamon and sugar chips!
I really hope you give this recipe a try this fall or winter, I think you’ll discover a new family favorite!
