Lucky Leaf Pie Fillings Valentine's Day Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! My next review and giveaway is for Lucky Leaf Pie Fillings! You may remember I reviewed some of their pie fillings before and you can check them out here.

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and Lucky Leaf is prepared to give you some delicious dessert ideas to bake for your special someone! I was sent some delicious apple pie filling to make the Ginger Apple Tart and strawberry filling to make the Chocolate Strawberry Rum Ganache Cake (on the website it says cherry but you can make it with strawberry filling, too.)

Both of these cakes are amazing, let's start with the one I made first the Chocolate Strawberry Rum Ganache Cake. This cake is incredible. It is soooo good. One negative, I have reason to believe that the picture on Lucky Leaf's website is photoshopped because mine ended up looking like this:



The top part of the cake ended up sticking to the top of the cake pan so I scraped it off and put it on top then poured the ganache sauce all over. The ganache sauce was actually a lot more than expected so it kind of spilled over. It was messy yes, but it was very, very, very, very delicious! The ganache called for rum but I used Jim Beam instead and it worked perfectly. My roommate liked it but said it wasn't too chocolately, but I like of liked it like that. You could really taste the strawberries and it is such a unique and delicious flavor. It is also just as addicting as regular chocolate cake and I may have eaten it for breakfast. I also gave some to my friend because the way I was going with eating it I would be fat in no time. It is sooo good though!

Next up the Ginger Apple Tart. I didn't have a tart pan or a star-shaped cookie cutter, so I improvised. I used a spring-form pan and I cut a star on the top. Needless to say it looked a lot prettier than the ganache cake but also tasted extremely delicious.



I literally just made this tart now and it said to wait one hour to cool and I just couldn't. I'm super glad I didn't either. It looks like your average apple pie right? Well, you are sorely mistaken. The ginger really gives it a kick, and it's sweet and delicious. Another unique flavor but it's almost a mind explosion because your mind thinks apple pie but then you get this incredibly delicious ginger flavor. I'm also pretty relieved that the spring form pan worked.

Overall these desserts are incredible and perfect for not just Valentine's Day but every day. I just hope my roommates help me out with finishing the ginger apple tart because seriously, it is too good I don't know if I'll be able to control myself.

Definitely check out Lucky Leaf pie fillings, they're made with actual apples and strawberries and contain no high fructose corn syrup and they're just incredibly delicious. Their recipes are insane, too, definitely make these if you want to switch up you're desserts. You won't be disappointed!
