Apple Pie with Gingersnap Crust and Bacon Streusel Topping

So, the title really says it all, huh?

You might know that I don't really like regular apple pie. But this pie. This pie was amazing.

I not too long ago bought two different pie cook books. One of which, The United States of Pie, has a recipe using a gingersnap crust. It's just like a graham cracker crust, crumble up some gingersnaps and add melted butter and a little sugar. So that sounded fantastic, but it was paired with a lemon cream filling and I wanted something a little more festive for the Christmas party we were going to. So I googled gingersnap crust pie and found this: Apple Pie with Gingersnap Crust and Bacon Streusel Topping. 

Just to reiterate, it was amazing. When I first read that cookbook it was like a revelation! You could just crumble up any kind of cookie for a pie crust!! I'm greatly looking forward to exploring this.

Merry Christmas!

Turns out when you are a cheese-monger in training around the holidays, you don't have much spare time.

But I did manage to watch the LWA social two days late on my day off and write a few Christmas cards.

I've mostly been using washi tape and stickers to decorate my envelopes this Christmas, but I hope maybe after the holidays that I can make some more collages or drawings.

What have you all been up to?

Oh, I've also been feeding my pie addiction. More on that later.
