An Apple A Day

Apples are one of those perfect foods . . .

They’re delicious, they’re good for you; and they smell wonderful while cooking!

I came across this quick and easy recipe for an apple dessert and thought you might enjoy it. 🙂



Fill a greased deep dish pie plate 2/3 full with sliced apples (about 5 apples needed)

Sprinkle with:
1 teaspoon sugar & 1 teaspoon cinnamon (mixed)

3/4 cup melted margarine
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Pour over apples and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until top is browned.


I‘ll add my two cents to the recipe . . .

*Serve warm.
*And a small dollop of real whipped cream or vanilla ice cream couldn’t hurt! 😉



A is for Apple

As Clenna reminded us last week with her photos from the orchard – it’s apple season! 😀

I’d like to share a recipe that was my grandmother’s. She’s gone now, but she’ll always be with me in spirit. She was the original organized homemaker, but then that’s really all that girls of her generation had to strive for. She was delightfully funny (witty, actually!), rather shy (but a great story-teller), very generous, and had a way of letting you know she loved you . . . without a lot of words. I still miss her, but I know she’d be tickled that I’m sharing this recipe with you. It’s delicious and so easy to make!
