As Belinda Thompson, the heroine of Dialing Dreams, book 1 in the Vintage Jazz Romance Series, mentioned in her character interview, her favorite dessert is apple pie with chocolate ice cream. So here’s the recipe for you! (Straight from my grandmother’s recipe box.)



1 & 1/2 c. apples, sliced

1/2 c. packed brown sugar

1/4 c. white sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. cloves

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/2 – 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Dash of salt

Make and prepare pie crust. Roll out pie crust and place in pie pan. Add apple mixture. Bake at 415 degrees for 15 minutes and then 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Cool and enjoy. Don’t forget the scoop of chocolate ice cream!
