My Grandmother was known for her beautiful homemade apple pie. The crust was always super flaky and packed chock full of sweet apple filling. “Picture perfect” we would call them:)

The recipe I am sharing combines a less sweet, but very flaky dough, with a sweet and tart filling that is par cooked to allow for a “mile high” effect! I have added raspberries that we picked over the summer and had flash frozen. You can use fresh raspberries if you prefer. Either way, this pie will be the star of your dessert table this holiday !

I have included three separate photo galleries…and complete printable instructions.

Strawberry Champagne Trifle

Strawberry and Champagne are a classic combination.  Add pastry cream, ladyfingers and whipped cream for an incredible dessert.

Strawberry Champagne Trifle. Yum!

The trifle should be made the day before you plan to serve it. This allows the flavors to come together for a fantastic dessert! I used prosecco in place of champagne, but you decide!
