While we might not be experiencing fall like all our friends back in the states, we can still eat the occasional fall food. I have yet to find pumpkin of any variety, but we do have apples. So this week I set out to make a yummy apple treat. We had dinner guests coming over for two occasions so I immediately thought of trying out an apple pie for one of them. Then I stumbled upon this recipe for an Apple Braid. It not only looks impressive, but was relatively simple to make and even had a nice flavor. Plus I didn’t need to try and find a substitute for a shortening based crust. This is something that Mikayla could even help me out with (although she was sleeping when I made it this go round). Here is a snapshot of the finished version. We didn’t manage to get a picture of it cut open, but imagine a delicious apple filling on the inside.
