Eve’s Apple Pie A’La Mode Parfait for One

Why the name “Eve” in the title of this recipe?

Because this delectable apple dessert is so sinfully tempting.

And why only a recipe for one?

Because you won’t want to share this delight with just any Adam.

After coming up with this the other night, I had to make another one the next night- it’s THAT good. A combination of fruit, spice, and ice cream that takes you into a relaxful bliss- making you feel almost ashamed to be eating it while taking a bubble bath in your birthday suit.

Ingredients:

French Vanilla Ice Cream

One Pink Lady Apple (or your apple of choice, I suppose)

1 tbsp Butter

1 tbps Honey

1 tbsp Brown Sugar

1 Dash of Cinnamon

4 crushed Graham cracker squares

Directions:

1. Peel apple before slicing off small “chip” size pieces until you are down to the core.

2. Put apple pieces, butter, brown sugar, honey, and cinnamon all in a small saucepan and heat to boiling- stirring often. Lower heat and let simmer for a couple minutes until apples are tender and sauce is syrupy.

3. Begin to layer your parfait: crushed graham cracker as “crust”, spoonful of hot apple mix as “pie feeling”, and scoop of ice cream “a’la mode”. Repeat. Top with crushed graham cracker, remaining apples, and as much of the syrup as you can get out of the pan.

4. Enjoy and try to not feel guilty about keeping it to yourself.

(Sorry the picture isn’t great- I wish you could smell it, see it, and taste it for yourself! I guess if you follow this recipe you’ll be able to!)

Even Dogs Deserve Delectables!

I am writing this post in honor of my featured artist for the week on my website- Nora Bartlett with Lollypaws Dog Bakery. I found the cutest 4th of July dog treat gift box in her shop that made me just laugh out loud while thinking of how much my dogs would LOVE something like this! My dogs aren’t very spoiled- key word “very”. My dogs get to sleep inside (not something most of my dogs as a child got to experience). They get to eat the occasional leftovers from our dinner plates. They get to run around our property for hours chasing birds, gophers, and our goats and pig. And our dogs get a treat before we leave the house each day. That’s not too spoiled is it? The way I figure it: Even dogs deserve to have a delectable moment!

I am definetaly saving Nora’s shop information for future reference. For example- we may decide to celebrate one of our dogs’ birthdays! 🙂 Or Christmas boxes would be great!!! Why don’t you check out the information I posted for Nora here: http://delightfullyperceptive.com/perceptive_delectables/featured_food_designer? You can also visit her Etsy shop directly… http://www.etsy.com/shop/Lollypaws.

Happy 4th and hope your pooches enjoy the day too! Let Nora know I sent you!
