Blue Owl Levee-High Apple Pie

We received this rather improbable pie as a Christmas gift -- shipped frozen all the way from the Blue Owl Cafe in Kimmswick, Missouri. And as Claui's parents, sister, brother-in-law and three kids were coming for lunch yesterday, it seemed the perfect time to see what a Levee-High Apple Pie was like.  

First it had to bake -- almost two hours...

When at last it was done, there was a tub of caramel sauce,  laced with chopped pecans, to be microwaved and spread over the dome. 

And then it was time to try to make slices -- not easy. We ended up with somewhat disassembled slices on our plates.

But once we topped them with dollops of Charlotte Russe, left over from Christmas dinner, the messy presentation hardly mattered.

Nothing healthy about that, and oh so delicious!!! The first photo looks like a swollen chicken pot pie! Wonder if one could be made to look like that??

Crazy. I read about these pies in our rural electric paper, but haver never checked it out. I have to wonder how all of those apples get done stacked so high.

That looks delicious. Never saw a pie that high before. Definitely worthy of the name though.

Christmas is for indulging. And you did it so well.

Looks more like some kind of wasps nest than a pie! But I'll bet it tasted good.
