My generation is the very last one to use pencil and paper as the primary method of gathering, compiling, and sharing information. So for me, rescuing recipes from the past where our ancestors scribbled beloved dishes on scratch pads, napkins, receipts, or back of envelopes has taken an even greater sense of urgency. However, I also love writing about how an old favorite becomes trendy again, reintroducing itself to a whole new generation. The Apple Pie is the perfect example. Do you ever remember life without it? But have you seen the newest version of our nation’s sweetheart dessert? Introducing you to the latest viral food sensation, the Apple Pie Cookie. It’s fun, it’s delicious, it’s cute, and it makes you feel like you can eat one and not gain a pound! The Apple Pie Cookie uses all the same ingredients as a good old fashioned apple pie – it’s just reconstructed into little lattice-topped discs of yumminess. Nothing will ever replace our love for the iconic American apple pie, but I think even Granny Smith would love these!
