Apple Pie Pockets

Standard

I’m noticing there are apples everywhere, not only on the ground outside, but all over in the blogging world as well. I had a few apples in the refrigerator, not enough to make a pie, but I was hungry for exactly that, a pie. This was the easiest, fastest thing I could think up.  Apple Pie Pockets. And they taste delicious with maple walnut icecream.

Farmer’s Markets and Apple Pie

Standard

I love when summer comes. You can tell in the air and in the surroundings. Flowers start blooming

 it rains instead of snows, and the farmer’s market comes out. That’s probably one of my favorites. The farmer’s market. Throughout the summer fresh fruits and vegetables are available, homemade baskets, mini doughnuts, and the hats. I love all the different colours of hats at farmer’s markets. The pinks and purples and yellows and reds. They reflect the business of the market. It’s a soothing experience. Our local farmer’s market just opened up for the summer, and the homemade pies looked were amazing.
We got an Apple pie and some cherries. The pie was delicious. As soon as I opened the box, the warm aroma of apples and spices flew at me. Literally. The apples were soft and crisp at the same time, with a beautiful meld of spices. What would normally make a nice, warm, winter snack, became my night time summer snack. The pie crust was nice and flaky but still thick enough to hold the pie. I love pie crust, and this one made number 2 on my list. What’s your favorite farmer’s market sense?

Apple Crisp

Standard

I’m excited to be one of twenty picked for the Awesomest Food Blog awards. If you have nothing else to do, why not go over to i am mommy and vote for me. It’s the first blog award I’ve been considered for so it’s pretty exciting. Now back to the usual program…

Apple Crisp. Are you seeing a trend here? Apples in my cake Apple Crisp. I’m really enjoying the use of the little tart apples we have. This was the best Apple crisp I’ve ever had. It tastes good warm and cold.
Apple Crisp
1991-1992 Clipper Cuisine Cookbook (Adaption)

4 cups sliced, pared tart apples (6 small)
2/3 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup softened butter

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 8×8″ pan (I didn’t and it seemed to come off of the pan fine). Place chopped apples in pan. Mix remaining ingredients thoroughly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake for 35 minutes or until tender.  *I mixed everything together with my hands. It’s okay if the butter clumps with the dry ingredients, as long as you spread it out on the apples.
 Enjoy!
