Good morning my friend! I hope your day is off to a good start.
We turned our clocks ahead for Spring over the weekend, yet we are currently in the throes of our third blizzard in as many weeks. Don’t get me started!
Well, they do say March comes in like a lion, right??
One other thing about March: St. Patrick’s Day! I love this holiday and I’ve got lots of St. Patty’s recipes to prove it.
Now if you’re looking for something authentically Irish, look no further than this apple amber. I discovered it on Real Irish Desserts, so that should tell ya!
I thought it sounded really unique and delicious, so I put my own spin on it. This version has LOTS of sweet apples, a buttery pastry crust, and a generous cloud of airy meringue.
I loved it and I think you will too! It looks a lot like lemon meringue pie but it’s got a flavor all it’s own.
Make apple amber your new St. Patrick’s Day tradition!
