I’m happy to be here to tell you a little more about my recipe that’s featured in the new Passionate Cooks cookbook. It’s a sour cream apple pie that was passed down to my mother by my grandmother, and won contests for both of them. My mother gave it to me and I’ve been making it for years. When it came time for the heroine of my book Head Games, who is a chef, to have a signature dish, I chose that sour cream apple pie.
The book is the first in my Buffalo Intimidators hockey menage series, which follows the members of a hockey team –the Buffalo Intimidators– as they form permanent menage relationships. Kelly names her dish Intimidating Apple Pie and only makes it on game days. But this pie is anything but intimidating – it’s actually really easy to make!
Before I put the pie in the book I asked my mom if it would be okay to add. After all, I write some pretty steamy stories and I wanted to make sure she was comfortable. She said sure, and I ended up putting in a scene where my two heroes put one of those pies through its paces, using the heroine as their canvas. I can only imagine what my dear departed grandmother would say if she knew I’d used her pie for such a nefarious purpose!
So go download your free copy of Passionate Cooks and find my recipe, right near the end. See if you think it’s intimidating, or just delicious!
