DALLAS - June 30, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Fireworks, cookouts, baseball and a salute to Old Glory – these are a few of America's favorite things. But when Chef Andy Wittman of Pie Five Pizza was tasked with finding the best way to show his patriotism this Fourth of July, he knew exactly where to start – Granny's kitchen.
Never one to make a fuss, Granny Wittman was happy to oblige. So starting today, with the help of her grandson, Pie Five guests nationwide can get a taste of Granny's Apple Pie, an original combination of snickerdoodle cookies and fresh apple pie. This patriotic indulgence starts with a buttery snickerdoodle crust layered with warm cobbler-spiced apples. Topped with cinnamon streusel crumbles, this delectable dessert will have you singing "Yankee Doodle Dandy" at first bite.
"Growing up, I knew a trip to Granny's house meant two things: lots of hugs and endless treats," Wittman said. "Granny makes a mean snickerdoodle cookie and her apple pie is the envy of all her neighbors. I could never just have one or the other, and I didn't want our guests to be faced with that kind of a dilemma either."
No dawdling, now – Granny's homemade goodies are only available through August 3; and if you don't give them a try, you're going to hurt her feelings.
"Oh my yes, that Andy always had quite the sweet tooth," chuckled Granny Wittman from the comfort of her rocking chair. "He's a great little helper, and so smart – but between you and me, I taught him everything he knows."
