The season of apples has already come and I do not hide from you that from the very first moment that I noticed them in the market, I craved hot crunchy apple pies, delicious and scented, that sparkles the aromas of apple and cinnamon! But these aromas bring to my mind a sence of winter don’t you agree? And as I believe that you have to create the proper scenery to enjoy your food -or your desert in this case-, I waited for the right moment! Because we enjoy something with all our senses don’t you think? Now that the weather has become colder, burn your fireplace, make your hot coffee and enjoy these delicious apples! Wonderful!
