Thanksgiving cakes and pies, oh my!

Yesterday, I did the unthinkable! I made these:

 

Buttery Apple Torte

 

 

Apple pies!

 

 

Click on the images to check out the recipes.

They turned out pretty decent, if I may say so myself. I did learn a few things though:

  • Recipes recommend Granny Smith apples for a reason – I used some ginormous Fuji apples cause that’s what I had on hand
  • Apparently if you don’t have any vanilla extract on hand you can use maple syrup instead!
  • I need to obtain some pie pans
  • 8 giant apples will make 2 pies and a torte!

Hope you had a great day yesterday whether you do Thanksgiving or not!
