Treat to Try: Salty Caramel Apple Hand Pie
Let’s kick off the Treat to Try portion of Treats Week with a quite tasty – and beautiful – piece of handcrafted pastry. You may remember I talked about Blue Frost Cupcakes before, but they have since added a couple of items to their product line. One of those items being a Salty Caramel Apple Hand Pie. Usually crafted in a rustic circle, they are making these in a cute heart shape through Valentine’s Day.
Each pie is about 4 inches high and wide. Enjoy the wonderful aroma as you take it out of its package! The pastry enclosing these treats is delicious – chewy and flaky – and stand alone good. It’s lightly browned and then drizzled with a caramel sauce and sprinkled with flakes of salt. The inside filling consists of slightly tart apples that remain a bit crisp and are mixed with notes of cinnamon. When you get a bite of everything – mmm, there’s the sweet spot! This little bite of heaven is only $2 and would make any Valentine’s Day special. But make sure to get everyone their own because I doubt you’ll want to share. Call ahead to verify availability. They can also be special ordered.
