I was filled with trepidation when I attempted my 1st go at my FIL's recipe. For those of you who have followed along for a while, you know that I'm a total wanna be Martha, but I have no game.
Much to my delight, I rocked my 1st apple pie like it was nobody's business.
We had company on Sat. night. They are the kind of friends who I could serve pizza out of the box and they would not blink an eye, but I decided to make an apple pie and chocolate chip cookie bars for dessert. I like options with my sweets. Well, truthfully, I can't use the word "options" because I eat all of them. Guilty.
We were short on time as we prepped for our friends to arrive, so the hubs started making the pie while I was upstairs frantically cleaning. I walked downstairs and panicked when I saw him mixing all the ingredients together. He's good at a lot things, but has no street cred when it comes to the kitchen.
However, I have to admit he rocked it and would make Martha say, "it's a good thing, Kevin."
Unfortuanetly Martha would scowl at me and say, "kitchen time out for you missy!" if she saw what I did. I took the cookie bars in a glass baking dish out of the oven, rested it on the stovetop, and accidentally turned on the wrong burner for our corn. Instead of heating a pot of water, I heated the glass containing my delicious chocolate chip bars. As we were chatting and prepping food the glass popped like a gun firing and shattered glass everywhere.
So much for the chocolate chip bars.
At least we still had pie.
The best part? I found my hubs taking pics of his Top Chef experience. He must have an inner blogger in him.
And because we are friends, I'm going to share the recipe. I'm not one to keep secret recipes. When something is as scrumptious as this, you just have to share.
Linking up with the lovely Heather. Come visit!
