One of my favoritest junk foods in the whole world is/was the old-school apple pies that they used to sell at McDonald's.
You know, the deep-fried, ought-to-come-with-defib-paddles little bundles of appley goodness.
A few years ago, I could still find them at one or two McDonald's restaurants, and when I happened to be nearby, I'd buy a good 5 or 6 of them. This was apparently unusual, judging from the reactions of the people manning the counters.
But in recent years, my supply has been cut off. Kentucky Fried Chicken has something pretty similar with its apple turnovers, which are nice if you can ignore the slight hints of salty chicken.
The picture here was from McD's U.K. site, which I guess gives me yet another reason to travel abroad.
But lo and behold, the Internet lives up to its potential and BAM, recipes for the industrious DIYer, including my beloved (and healthy) apple pies and Shamrock Shakes.
Methinks there will be some food experimentation here in the Siftin' Test Kitchen. And I can work off those extra calories by taking a quick jog to say, Alpha Centauri.
