Apple Pie Bombs A La Mode

fried apple pie bombs served a la mode!

In one day I made more fried food than I even care to admit. It was bad. But, I hate getting a pan of oil going on the stove so when I fry recipes for the site I like to slam it all out in a couple days of testing so that I can get as money things done in one batch of oil as possible. And it’s hot out which was adding to the nasty while I stood in the kitchen and fried food. I seriously think I was sweating oil by the end of it. So technically you all owe me because these apple pie bombs a la mode that were inspired by a recipe I did for Pillsbury were to die for and now you all can enjoy them too.

But really, you guys should pin the heck out of it as a thank you. πŸ™‚ Just kidding.

They really are so good and anything that is served a la mode style is Cade’s favorite so he was happy to offer up a little foot massage to show his appreciation. And while he rubbed my feet we struck up a little conversation about ice cream. I’m probably the wrong person to talk to about ice cream because I’m not at all an expert like Cade is, but we were chatting about what the best vanilla is. Is it french, slow churned, Tillamook, Kirkland, Custard, or homestyle? What do you all think?
