Smexybooks is pleased to welcome the always funny, never shy, Alice Clayton to celebrate her new release, Wallbanger.
Welcome to the 1st Day of the 12 Days of Wallbanger! Each day will feature a different gift, most of them themed right out of the book. Le’ts get banging!
I loves me some apple pie. I loves me some baking. I loves me some smexy times. Put ‘em together…you’ve got Wallbanger.
I bake apple pies all year round, and this time of year especially. I started making my own pie crust about 10 years ago, and while it used to scare me to death now I could never NOT do it! The key to any pastry is the colder the better, chill your ingredients, use ice cold water, and if you have a marble board to roll out your dough on, even better. I have tested lots of different pie crust recipes, but my favorite it still Martha Stewart’s Pate Brisee.
All butter, all amazing. I have made this by hand with a pastry cutter, and now I use my food processor, makes it soooo much faster. But either will work. If you don’t have a pastry cutter, you can use a fork!
My apple pie filling is a little harder to pin down, but I do have the recipe for 1 lucky winner, along with my favorite Emile Henry deep dish pie pan. Here’s hoping you have a Wallbanger following you around your kitchen too.
Come see us tomorrow over on girlsinthestacks.com for Day 2 of 12 Days of Wallbanger! And follow us on twitter, look for #12DaysofWallbanger
Alice is giving away, to one lucky winner, a copy of Wallbanger in any digital format, a copy of her Redhead series (2 ebooks) in any digital format, a copy of Alice’s famous Apple Pie recipe AND a baking pan in which to make it!
