caramel apple pie floats.


You aren't really a fan of dessert. I will never understand why chocolate cake isn't your favorite thing, or why you don't crave a warm cookie dunked in milk. I asked you once when we were kids what your favorite dessert was just so I could perfect it. You said apple pie. Now apple pie anything brings my mind back to you…not that it was too far away from you anyway. 



Today was cold and snowy. The roads were terrible and the interstate was shut down in places because there were so many accidents. Days like today, when the weather's bad, you're always on my mind. I pray for your safety, that you will stay warm and dry, and that if you're on the road somewhere you stay out of harms way. 


Days like today I think about the possibility of "us", and what it will be like when you're mine. I'd like to make these for you after a cold, hard day at work. They would warm you up from the inside out, and make you happy since it's your favorite flavor. I hope it's not too fancy. 
You'd probably say it is. 


Caramel Apple Pie Floats

These a so very easy. You don't really need a recipe, just use as much or little of each ingredient as you'd like so it tastes good to you!

2 - 3 scoops salted caramel gelato per person
refrigerated pie crust
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon course sugar
a pinch of cinnamon

In a medium size saucepan over medium-low heat, warm cider. 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Remove pie crust from package and unroll. Using the edges of a teaspoon, cut pie crust into small circles and place on parchment lined baking sheet.

Brush crusts with egg and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

Bake according to the package directions and let cool completely.

Scoop gelato into large mug. Pour cider over gelato and top with mini pie crust rounds.

Serve with two straws and enjoy with someone you love. 

Be grateful you have someone to share with. <3
