Apple Crumble Top Pie

Apple Crumble Top Pie  |  Amandeleine

There’s that saying, “American as apple pie”.

Does that mean I’m breaking some sort of international rule if I make apple pie for Canadian Thanksgiving?

Dutch Apple Pie Bars

Dutch Apple Pie Bars  |  Amandeleine

Unfortunately, Trevor discovered the hard way that he did not like white peaches. He likened them to peaches with no peach flavour. I knew I needed to save the poor things before they ended up in the trash. So I improvised.
