Maple-Cheddar Apple Pie at Stowe Mountain Lodge this Thanksgiving!
Thereâ€™s just something about a really good homemade apple pie that can transform a family dinner, particularly during the holidays. Talk to any Vermont foodie and apple pie is always a staple for winning over a crowd.
Thatâ€™s why when we first tried our pastry chef, Chelsea Whittemoreâ€™s signature Apple-Cheddar Pie, we knew we had something special that our guests would simply love. Topped with a cheddar cheese crumble thatâ€™s made with Shelburne Farm cheese, Chelseaâ€™s maple apple pie goes beyond the traditional pies most Vermonters serve on Thanksgiving.Â
Chelsea, a native Vermonter herself, grew up baking with her grandma in Waterville and knew she wanted to go into the culinary arts at a young age. It was later, after attending the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, she discovered that being a pastry chef was her true calling.Â
â€śIâ€™ve always enjoyed making desserts, especially my grandmaâ€™s special recipes, and here at the Lodge I love sharing recipes that are native to Vermont like my Maple-Cheddar Apple Pie. I love baking things that make people happy and desserts do just that.â€ťÂ
She first brought her signature Apple Pie to the Lodge for a wedding tasting, where the bride- and groom-to-be asked for a dessert that was â€śtruly Vermont.â€ťÂ Chelsea came up with small single-serving pies that had a flakey crust, maple and apple filing and her signature cheddar cheese crumble. Since then, itâ€™s become a Lodge favorite and guests have even asked to meet her after tasting her pie.Â
Weâ€™re excited to be offering the pie for Thanksgiving so that guests and locals alike can enjoy Chelseaâ€™s pie on this special holiday, and, even better, each pie comes with Chelseaâ€™s special recipe.Â
Call 802-760-4732 by November 17 to order your pies for $18 each. Believe us when we say your family will thank youâ€¦and will most likely do all the Thanksgiving dishes after tasting this dessert-now thatâ€™s priceless!
