It’s 75 and ☀️ in San Diego and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but the calendar says it’s fall 🍁, so it’s apple season. My husband told me to get a hobby the other day, and I realized how much I’ve missed baking. I mean it’s been, like, YEARS, since I baked something a) outside the holiday season and b) that takes time, patience, and more ingredients than I can count on one hand.
So here we are - me speaking my love language: pastry.
Inspired by @brettemmerson and her delicious apple concoctions of late, as well as my ever-talented cousin-in-law @nataliemize3 , who BRINGS IT with food that’s as beautiful as it is delicious, I channeled @inagarten - while 🤘🏻 to her Women Who Rock playlist on @applemusic - and whipped up her insanely good apple pie bars. Two hours and a satisfying, giant kitchen mess later, we have this beauty.
Can I just say WOW. And again, WOW. Like holy buttery shortbread meets apple pie in a fall foodstravaganza so tender and tasty, I have to send a large portion of this pan to work with @trombachris so we don’t have to be rolled out of our house by the end of this week. But of course, isn’t sharing the best part of cooking, baking, eating? Maybe food is the very best love language. ❤️
