A$AP Ferg just dropped his fifth studio album, has worked with brands from Adidas to Tiffany & Co., and even performed at the Internet-breaking Savage X Fenty show, but it seems the more success the Harlem-born-and-raised rapper gains, the more he stays true to his roots.
In the latest episode of Made From Scratch, we caught up with the Floor Seats artist and his uncle T-Nice, who shared an apple pie recipe from his time in a correctional facility. If you prefer to stay away from an oven, then this is the recipe for you; all you need is a microwave. Check out the recipe below and try out the recipe for yourself!
- 7 apples
- 2 boxes vanilla sandwich cookies
- Ground cinnamon
- Strawberry jam
Peel, core, and chop the apples into bite-sized pieces. Separate the cookie sandwiches (roughly 50 sandwiches), and scrape off the frosting. Be sure to save the frosting as you'll need it later!
Crumble about a third of the cookies into a glass baking dish and spread evenly. Then, layer half of the chopped apples evenly on top of the crumbled cookies. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on the apples. Add another layer of unbroken cookies, laying them flat one by one. Push down to flatten the layers. Add another layer of the remaining apples, and sprinkle more cinnamon.
Add one final layer of cookies, and top with cookie crumbles. Press down to evenly compress the layers. Add one final sprinkle of cinnamon. Microwave the baking dish (again, please use glass, no metal!) for 10 minutes. When done, let the pie cool down just a little. While it's still warm, spread the frosting from the cookie sandwiches evenly on top of the pie, then add a thin layer of strawberry jam. Pop the dish back into the microwave for 10 seconds, and enjoy!
