Last-Minute Luxury Gifts for Her

We are getting down to the wire here, with just a little over a week before Christmas. It can be hard to find the perfect gift, but it doesn't have to be. With online shopping, you can find some really great items she'll love, and ones that  don't cost a fortune either.

Etsy can be a great place to find something beautiful and unique. Some items on Etsy have a longer processing time, but some, particularly the jewelry and candle shops, tend to have things ready-made. Thus you're bound to find some very beautiful and unique gifts. You just have to check the deadline for Christmas in each shop's announcements. Some will even work with you on rush orders, so it never hurts to ask!

Salted-Caramel Apple Pie


When the colder weather hits and the holidays approach, I consistently have pie on the brain when it comes to desserts. A warm flaky crust and fall spices can only be improved upon by something like salted caramel. After all, my love likes caramel...and pie, so when I wanted to bake him something, caramel apple pie was the perfect choice.:)



I used this Williams Sonoma recipe as a start for the apple filling. It was the first time I pre-cooked apple slices before baking them in a pie, and I have to say it turned out absolutely perfect.




I also noticed the crust turned out better then usual. I used this basic pie crust recipe that I always use, but I think cooking the juices out of the apple first helped to make a more crispy crust.




I used a leaf cookie cutter and a small knife to create the look of real leaves on top. Brush them with the egg wash to help them stick to the top crust.

There is a salted-caramel recipe in the Williams Sonoma version, but if you need to make it dairy-free like I did, try this easy caramel sauce recipe. Enjoy!:)
