Impromptu blog post.
It was Saturday afternoon and we had plans with friends for an early dinner.
I’m standing in the produce aisle with Hubby and said “Hey, let’s do dessert at our house!”
He certainly didn’t argue with that and when I asked what should I make, he pointed to the Granny Smiths behind me.
Say no more.
I made an impromptu pie for a impromptu invitation.
It’s easy and delicious.
The hardest part was peeling the apples.
I used pre-made crust.
Impromptu doesn’t call for homemade crust. (I promise one of these days, I’ll give you my homemade crust recipe.)
No fancy photos. No step by step.
This was the only piece left this morning.
It’s a go-to recipe whether it’s planned or not!
