Quinn loves counting on the abacus. And, of course, this makes Chris very happy.
Chris and I collaborated last night and made this apple pie. He did the vast majority of the prep work and I told him the incorrect amounts of various ingredients. Sometimes that happens. I'm not a huge apple pie fan, but this one has a caramel and chopped pecan topping, so how can you not love it? I used this recipe. We are bringing it out to my mother's house this week and we felt like we needed a trial pie. And a trial batch of hard sauce for topping. We made ours with spiced rum instead of whiskey. Woah, Mama! The hard sauce with this particular pie may have been a bit much...it was seriously rich.
