I’m not sure what it is about apples, but they are a huge part of our lives and culture. From Adam and Eve to Snow White, apples are always around us.
* the apple of my eye * As American as apple pie * the Big Apple * an apple a day keeps the doctor away * one bad apple spoils the whole bunch * an apple for the teacher *
See what I mean? We eat a lot of apples in my house, and everyone has a personal favorite variety. Granny smith, Fuji, Gala, Red Delicious, and Pink Lady. While we eat most of them plain, I have been working them into more and more of our recipes. This one is a treat that I didn’t feel bad about giving to the kids. It’s cool, light, and tastes like an indulgent dessert!
