She Likes Mrs. Smith’s Dutch Apple Pie! (Review & Giveaway)
My daughter actually ate pie and “liked it” last night! Since she was young she has always refused cooked fruit. No applesauce, no cinnamon apples, no pies. The only cooked fruit she would eat was pineapple on pizza or in stir fry. (She doesn’t like cake either – I don’t know where she gets it from).
Last night we were at the store to select a Mrs. Smith’s pie to review and she wanted to get an apple pie (I wanted to try pumpkin). She agreed to try the Dutch Apple pie if I bought it. At dessert she tried the Dutch Apple Pie and said she liked it. She ate probably 4 forkfuls before having enough. This was progress from a week ago at Thanksgiving when she tried one bite of cherry pie and “hated it’.
We picked the Pre-Baked Dutch Apple pie since I prefer crumb topping pies to pies with a crust topping. The pie was very easy to bake, for just 30 minutes. Overall the pie tasted pretty good. My only complaint was the thickness of the pie filling. When I make homemeade pies I prefer to let the apple speak for themselves with a minimal addition of liquid. However, most pies I have purchased have the thick filling, so I assume most people prefer it.
With the scarcity of Michigan apples this year (and the resulting high prices), it was definitely nice to be able to purchase a pie.
This holiday season, Mrs. Smith’s is making it easy to share their pies with loved ones near and far with their holiday microsite. You can create a holiday e-card to send to family and friends. The sender and all recipients will receive a coupon for $1 off of Mrs. Smith’s pies. I used the holiday site and found it fairly easy to use. My only complaint was that I could not use an exclamation point in my holiday message.
