Just back from Amsterdam. Am I the only person who didn't know that apple pie was such a big deal for the Dutch? Possibly. I have to say, the dutch apple pie ROCKS. It is so delicious, no nuts, big chunks of cinnamony buttery appley goodness, with a crumbly, almost crumble-like pastry. Must find a recipe!
That said, this photo depicts The Apple Pie of Death! Delicious, sooo delicious, but not a good idea for breakfast on an empty stomach...Plasticfancy and I were starving on saturday morning, and ordered this huge wodge of pie and cream for breakfast, with a coffee on the side. But it proved too much for our delicate morning constitutions - too heavy, too rich for our poor stomachs. I think we experienced something close to the meat sweats (!), but for sweets - the sweets sweats????
