Apple Bacon Crumble aka “The Valentina Special”

So, my best friend, Valentina, calls me up one Friday night.  She’s all excited because she’d just come up with a genius idea for my blog.  It involved bacon.  She had my attention.  Val’s idea was for an apple pie that had a candied bacon lattice top.  It sounded crazy (mostly because Valentina is a little nuts — that’s part of her charm); but she was definitely onto something.  After some experimenting, I came up with this recipe.  It’s sweet with a subtle saltiness…and it’s named after Val because she told me that if I used her idea I had to mention her name in the blog post.

  3. I could definitely see this making sense. Also, interesting that you used Cortland. Every recipe I see always calls for granny smith.

    1. I love Cortland because they’re not too sweet, hold their shape and don’t brown when they’re cut. It’s my favourite cooking/baking apple.
