This Soft Pretzel Apple Pie Recipe is just about to become your go-to dessert recipe for every party you host!
Pies are pretty much what makes me love so much the holidays. I just can’t pick only one favorite flavor. Pumpkin pies, apple pies, chocolate pie bars, all of them are just as delicious. However, there’s a thing that in my opinion makes or breaks a good pie, and that’s the pie crust.
The pie crust is the single most important thing if you want to have a really delicious pie (the one that you pass to your kids and grandkids, and the one that leaves everyone asking for the recipe), and I really believe that most often than not we don’t give the crust the proper attention it deserves.
So I decided to take the matter in my own hands and got cooking. In this soft pretzel apple pie recipe all the spotlight is in, you guessed it, the crust! The crust tastes just like the pretzels you find at the mall. It’s soft and plushy, it’s buttery, it’s slightly sugary, and it’s sprinkled with just a hint of cinnamon.
Actually, the crust is so delicious that you can cut it into strips and bake it without filling and use as dipping sticks, that’s how good it is!
However, when you fill it with apple slices and spices and sugar, the result is mind blowing good! Seriously friends, this soft pretzel apple pie is the single most delicious pie I’ve ever had. The process of making it is not difficult at all, and the result is so mouthwateringly good that you’ll find yourself making it again and again. Needless to say, this is the best dessert for the season.
