    Hummus Mashed Potato


    Here it is guys, my apple pie recipe with the caramel sauce made with Cortas Amazing Tahini. The Tahini caramel is a special twist to this traditional dessert, it's nutty and sweet yet has a little salty taste that makes it yummy and addictive. It's so precious to me because i grew up eating this dessert Mom used to make, and now that i finally mastered the way to baking it, it taste just like the one my mother makes. Happy cooking!
