Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner and being in the US (where they celebrate the holiday like nothing I've ever seen) it makes me a little homesick, so I am planning to throw a big dinner for those who are here and make me feel less homesick by being great friends. Today I made the apple pies for dessert. It was just a standard apple pie with a few little tricks that my mom passed on to me. She said to dust the apples with a little flour so that they create a thick sauce when they cook... yum! She also said to do an egg wash on the top crust. But I jazzed it up with a little Mexican vanilla. You should have been in my apartment to smell that!!!!
So next time you make an apple pie, put some vanilla in your egg wash. yum yum!
