Apples, Pumpkins and Other Homey Fall Ingredients

DOM-Apple Pie-blogAhh… it’s finally that time of year when the blazing Atlanta sun at last gives us a break and the temperatures start to drop. Now, we can all begin to contemplate the homey flavors of fall.

At Alpine, our fall dessert preparations are in full swing. Our fall favorites include our Rustic Apple Pie, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Classic Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Swiss Roll, and our wildly authentic German Apple Strudel. Our Bakery hums with activity as the aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger infuse the air. Here’s what’s baking in greater detail.

pumpkin cheesecakeOur Rustic Apple Pie, which NOT coincidently is our October Dessert of the Month is at once simple and majestic. Boasting a full two pounds of apples, we’re not messing around. We’ve perfected our techniques to ensure that this TWO crust beauty is baked to perfection with flaky crust and amazing flavors.

Pumpkin Cheesecake… what a lovely combination. Our creamy New York style cheesecake with graham cracker crust, combined with pumpkin and traditional fall spice (cinnamon, cloves, and ginger) topped with fresh, natural whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.

Authentic Apple Strudel is surprisingly hard to find and we have stuck to the preparation that screams German Style authenticity and will have you wondering why you chose to have it any other way. Layers of buttered phyllo dough rolled and filled with fresh cut and cooked Granny Smith Apples and raisins before baking to perfection. We can serve it you your at room temperature or heated. Dreaming about Vanilla Bean Ice Cream to go with? Just wake up and ask, and we will bring out the Häagen-Dazs.
