An apple pie a day keeps the sadness at bay!
Pies may not be the top-of-mind dessert when it comes to us Pinoys, but given the opportunity, we’ll gladly indulge in a hefty slice. And while we may have our favorites from certain restaurants we used to frequent, I have been reminded of how nothing can ever beat one that’s freshly baked with love and care at a humble home kitchen, thanks to this delicious Apple Crumble Pie from What’s Abby Baking.
What began as a hobby of cooking and baking for family and friends turned into a passion business for 27-year-old Abby Cruz after deciding to share her delicious baked creations with the world. Described as a “one-woman kitchen (with a few helping hands on occasion),” What’s Abby Baking serves Apple Crumble Pie, a recipe she has developed and perfected for five years now, made-to-order with premium ingredients to give people the best eating experience.
Upon receiving my box, the first thing I noticed was how warm the pie is. She bakes it on the day, after all! With growing excitement, I carefully opened it and, almost instantly, the scent of fresh apples and cinnamon wafted through the air. That’s how I knew I was in for a treat.
With every bite, you first get a crumbly, crunchy, buttery top crust, before the sweet apple filling melts in your mouth with delightful tartness. Though Abby recommends eating it when it’s fresh out of the oven, I was able to enjoy it even on the succeeding days—both cold and warmed in the toaster—and I could have it again and again if I could if I’m being completely honest. Abby shared that she hopes to one day build her Crumble empire, and I won’t be surprised if she does!
What’s Abby Baking made me fall in love with Apple Crumble just in time for the holiday season. If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit or are already thinking of gifts to give to your family and friends around the Metro, this is one treat you should definitely sink your teeth into and share with others!
