I cannot stay away from apples. With the arrival of fall, it just feels so natural to eat apple-y things! It seems like everything I have been pinning lately has been fall-ish and apple-y. I know those probably aren’t real words but they should be!
So it’s no surprise that I pinned this pin for Mini Apple Pie Cookies from Oh Bite It!
I had every ingredient that I needed except for the apple pie filling so off to the store I went.
On my way out of the grocery store, I was following a very attractive Asian lady.
As I was making my way out to my car, she turned around and said “I forgot where I parked my car.”
I replied “Oh my. I do that all the time.” She laughed and said “That makes me feel so much better.”
But then she asked me “Do you think I have Alzheimer’s?” We both kind of chuckled but I told her no, and that she was probably fine. I asked her if she could pull her keys out and press them to make her car sound.
She said “I have a Prius and it’s an electric car. It doesn’t beep!” “I can’t believe I can’t find my car,” she mumbled And off she walked to another aisle to look for her Prius.
I packed up my own car and as I drove out of the parking lot, I saw her still walking around trying to find her car. I felt so bad for her.
So I don’t want you to forget where you parked when you go to get the items to make these wonderful cookies! I want you to remember exactly where you parked so you can get home as quick as you can to get these delicious morsels into the oven! These taste just like an apple pie but quicker and easier. And if I had some vanilla ice cream, that would be the perfect final touch.
After you make them, I know that you’ll agree with me that This Pin Rocks!
