I picked out my Dad's Father's Day gift months ago.
I spotted it in the pages of my April issue of Phoenix Magazine.
The man loves pies, but not quite as much as he loves spicy food.
In steps the Pie Snob and her Apple Green Chile and Jalapeno Pie.
My husband and I drove 1 hour roundtrip to pick it up a couple days prior. It took everything in my power not to dig my finger in there for a tiny little taste.
On Sunday, we made him share.
I was so unsure of what I would think. A spicy apple pie? Brilliant. You could spot the green chilies all throughout the filling and the topping is made with a jalapeno-flavored butter.
And an added bonus is the fact that she uses no lard to make the crust.
All in all, I would say it was worth the drive.
For the sake of supporting a great local business...I may just have to make it a point to try the rest of her 2 dozen or so creations.
