There's A Secret To Eating And Serving Costco's Apple Pie
By David Tran
For true aficionados, Costco's bakery section holds tons of must-buy baked goods, and one dessert that might take the cake among Costco shoppers is the apple pie.
Costco's double-crust apple pie can be served and enjoyed as a traditional pie, but you can easily make the dessert into two separate treats, depending on your preferences.
Recipe developer Patty Catalano writes in The Kitchn that the dessert can moonlight as another sweet treat, thanks to its double crust: apple cobbler.
Cobblers are desserts typically made of fruit filling topped with a biscuit crust, while pies feature a pastry crust that completely encases the filling.
Cut a piece from the edge of the pie for a "better pastry-to-filling ratio and a crispier crust," advises Catalano, but aim for the middle if you're in the mood for apple cobbler.
Whether you enjoy Costco's apple pie as a pie or a cobbler, try adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra dose of goodness.
