This is the least homemade recipe I’ve every thrown together and I’m not ashamed. Sometimes I just don’t want to put in a ton of work, deal with it. At first, I was worried about sharing the recipe with you all but the more I thought about it, I realized that many of my followers would appreciate this easily made hunger fix. For those nights when you get home from work and just want to pig out on some comfort food, I present to you…drum roll, please….Beer Mac and Cheese Pie.
A lot of times, my recipes are a bunch of ingredients thrown together with a prayer that something magical will happen. That’s what happened with this apple pie filling. I thought, “How can I make an apple pie go well with beer?” So I researched a bunch of different apple pie recipes, picked out the parts I liked, and experimented. Luckily, the first try was successful. I didn’t use beer though. I used Pome Mel by Colorado Cider Company. This cider is beautiful. Unlike other ciders, it is not too apple-y and its made with honey and lavender. I picked it because I wanted the filling to be unique. When poured out of the bottle, it is light in color and smells a spa weekend. The flavors of the cider showed up very subtlety in the end. Overall it made the filling unique but the pie still tasted like a slice of home cooking.
