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!

can’t wait to read this book!
This book looks awesome, can’t wait to read it.
This book looks pretty great.
Wow, this sounds so yummy!!! I’ll have to try the recipe out, although I’m not holding out much hope. I’m a terrible cook, lol!
Smexy Books + Apple Pie = Happenis!
Catering orders from Bertucci’s, an Italian restaurant chain on the East coast, include a big bagful of individually wrapped butter packets with their bread rolls. Since the butter packets never get used up and clutter up the work fridge, I bring them home and bake with them. If I freeze them, I already have pre-measured, pre-cut cold butter cubes for pastry. No co-workers have complained about me hoarding the butter packets because they’re too busy eating the baked goods I bring in! :)
Really looking forward to reading this one. Thanks for the giveaway!

Book looks like a steamy read and just reading about the recipe makes me crave apple pie!
Thanks for sharing and maybe I’ll get to make this great pie!
Becky M. says
I read Wallbanger in a single day, and loved it! The Redhead series are on my TBR list now, so I’d love copies. (subtle hint) I’ve always made an oil pie crust–my dad couldn’t eat butter because of dietary restrictions–but my crust is awesome, and I do love to bake. I’ve sadly never had a baking incident like the one in Wallbanger, but am eternally hopeful.
Thanks for the giveaway, and happy holidays!
Vicki Williams says
I love all of your books Alice and would enjoy learning how to make an apple pie!
Pie and books—you can’t go wrong with that combination!
Thanks for the give away! I have never made an apple pie from scratch, but as I’ve been craving pie lately, there’s no time like the present to start :)
Thanks for the fun post and giveaway! I was able to get my hands on a copy of Wallbanger and I *loved* it!!!! :)
I would love to read this book and have it on my TBR list!!
Selena Mc says
My friend just reviewed this & loved it. I have it on my TBR list. Thanks!
I have od’d on historicals this year and hope to be revived with some apple pie and a Wallbanger!
Mmmm apple pie. Am I too late? Been in twitter jail as well. Cell block 8 w/ Alice? ;)thought I’d leave a comment but what I really want for Christmas is the Zucchini Bread recipe. x
Read Wallbanger yesterday and loved it! Was sad to have to say goodbye to the characters–I love Caroline and Simon! Please tell me you are writing a sequel! Also loved the references to Ina, she’s my favorite!
