You can make an herb caramel sauce to give your store-bought pie a gourmet twist.
Professional baker, winner of TLC’s “Cake Boss: Next Great Baker” Dana Herbert told Insider that he recommends adding an herbed caramel sauce to ready-made pies.
“Add some cinnamon, rosemary, thyme, ginger, or cardamom to warm caramel sauce and serve it with the pie,”Herbert said. “Even traditionally savory herbs can complement sweet desserts.”
If you’re not sure whether a particular herb would pair well with your pie, Herbert recommended closing your eyes and smelling the herb or spice — if you can detect something sweet in the scent, it’s probably OK to use.
