Our senses went into overload with this one. We could smell the sweet, nutty aroma of apple pie, but we could also smell the salty, savory goodness of bacon. What's a Yumologist to do?

Beware Yummies, this is not your Granny's apple pie. This bad boy will have you creating words like breaksert and desserfast. Your taste buds will be screaming for ice cream and eggs all at once. You'll be on the flavor trip of a lifetime.

We envision resurrecting this recipe for holiday mornings when friends and family enjoy a hot cup of coffee around a kitchen table as the snow falls outside. We know, visions of wintery thick-cut sugar plums dance in our heads.

Enjoy the ride Yummies.

1 box of pre-made pie crust (we use Pilsbury's 2 dough pack)
5 apples peeled and cored
5 slices of thin or thick cut bacon (we use thin for crisper pieces but it's up to you)
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 425 degree
Spray your prettiest pie dish with non-stick spray
Peel, core and slice the apples
Add the apples, pecans, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to a skillet
Simmer on med-low heat and stir until butter melts
Add the bacon to a separate skillet or frying pan
Fully cook the bacon then remove from it's pan, chop it and add it to the apple mixture
Cook until the apples soften
Add the first pie crust to the bottom of the pie dish
Add the apple and bacon filling to the pie
Top with the other pie crust and seal the edges together
Make cuts in the top of the pie crust (we recommend at least 3 slits)
Bake at 425 for 30 minutes
Remove and let cool before serving

Have a delicious, warm, gooey, sweet and salty day Yummies!
