Homemade Apple Pie is so much tastier than store-bought pie.

Luckily,  an apple pie is easy to make.  The most difficult part is slicing the apples.  After slicing the apples, you mix together the apples, flour, sugars, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.  If you do not have time to make a pie crust, simply purchase it and make the filling yourself.  This apple pie filling has been kicked up with extra cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.  It is full of flavor but what makes this apple pie special is the praline topping.  I added the praline sauce to the top pie crust the last ten minutes of baking.  The praline sauce bakes into the top of the pie for a sweet, crunchy treat.  It is like eating pralines on your apple pie.

Cajun Food

My family and I lived on the Northshore of New Orleans for several years including during Hurricane Katrina.  While living in New Orleans, I fell in love with their famous food including their pralines.  I learned while living in the New Orleans area that dessert is better with pralines or praline sauce.  I love adding pralines to top off my banana pudding.  The creamy pudding with the sweet, crunchy topping is amazing.  If you have not discovered praline sauce, you are missing out.  I use it on everything including pound cake, ice cream, pumpkin bread,  pecans,  best ever no-bake cheesecake (posting soon), and this fantastic Praline Apple Pie.  I simply added a praline sauce to my apple pie and baked it into the pie.

If you love New Orleans Classic Desserts, you have to check out these New Orleans recipes.  It is by Kit Wohl and features recipes from restaurants around New Orleans.

Another benefit to baking an apple pie is the sweet aroma coming from the kitchen that fills the house.  It reminds of 2 Corinthians 2:15 “For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.”  According to this verse, Christians are a sweet aroma to God.

  2. HI DIanne,
    I was looking for a photograph of an apple pie to use in a presentation to my boss about poverty and resources. I am a teacher in a low socio-economic area of S/E. Queensland, Australia. I saw your home-made apple pie photo and found it to be just the image that I was looking for. WHen I clicked on it and saw it was linked to the blog of a CHristian woman, I knew I had found the right photo. HOwever, I wouldn’t dream of using it without your permission and so, would you drop me a n email, if it ok for me to use you pie photo please? (I would bake my own pie and photograph that – the recipe looks amazing – but when God was handing out gifts and talents, he sent the baking gifts elsewhere 🙂
