Immaculate Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust Apple Pie
In case you haven’t noticed by all the pumpkin spice lattes, boots, and sweaters on instagram, fall is upon us! There’s something about fall that makes me want to throw on an apron, head to the kitchen, and bake something scrumptious! (As I was reading through some old posts, I just realized I said the exact same thing last year! If I said it twice, it must be true!)I’m not too big on pumpkin so, to me, apple pies scream fall! We went apple picking the other day so, since our house had ALL THE APPLES (that got turned into apple sauce, dried apples, apple pie filling, apple/blackberry jam…), I figured I needed to throw together an apple pie.
Since I’ve never made a successfully yummy pie crust (those things are HARD), I decided I needed to experiment a little. I mean, if an experiment goes wrong it’s not my fault. It’s a failed experiment, I’m not a failure. You feeling me? (Maybe I need to base my worth off more than being able to make a pie crust…)
Anywhoooo… My pie… I thought it would be super fun to make a cookie dough crust for my pie. You guys, it TOTALLY worked!!! This is definitely how I’m making pies from here on out!
