Sounds scrumptious, Sara. And, yes, I think it is an unbaked pastry shell.

Keeping with our month of celebrating apples I'm making All-Bran muffins with fresh apple, dried cranberries, and dried carrots today.

I received an email this past week that apples are available in Tehachapi. We are headed there today to pick up some fresh apples and apple cider. I see apple butter and applesauce in my future.

Took the granddaughters to pick apples while I was visiting them. Picked some red delicious and got some really nice Macs too. Going to be making pies to freeze and drying some slices.

Hay there,

Just wanted to share what my small town does this month every year. Its called Apple Annie Day and I always try to purchase a basket of apples. This year it will be Granny Smith apples and I intend to dry some. It will be the first time I've ever dried apples. I heard that Granny Smiths do well as dried treats. We shall see.

Apple Annie Day is a large festival with vendors and games and all sorts of things for a whole Saturday but the celebration is for the whole month of September. Look it up on the internet.....we have a lot of fun!!

Hugs and prayers, Daizy #1093

Daizy, Apple Annie Day sounds like a lot of fun. I dry all kinds of apples and my furry companion, Annie, likes them as well as her store bought doggy treats. I'm also using them in the apple custard pie for Apple Pie Sunday.

Wouldn't it be fun if we could turn our Apple Pie Sunday into a Festival. Thanks for the link!

Just checking in to wish you all a wonderful Apple Pie Sunday from Wales in the UK!! There are lots of apple trees here full of red and green apples. We will be on the road tomorrow most of the day so I doubt if I will find any Apple desserts. But, I have an apple from a fruit stand in my purse to enjoy! You can bet as soon as I get home, I am making an apple pie and eating a big piece hot from the oven!!!

Sounds like everyone has been having fun trying new Apple recipes or visiting apple orchards and taking advantage of these lovely fresh beauties that only September can deliver!!

Winnie what could be better than a juicy apple on a ride through Great Britain - well maybe a chunk of sharp cheddar cheese to go with the apple.

It's Apple Pie Sunday Eve and visions of apple pie are dancing in my head. I will decide in the morning if I will use dried or fresh apples. All will depend on how much time I have.

Whichever apples I use I will be nifty dressed in a beautiful vintage tablecloth apron that Linda 'Quiltee" gifted me. Thanks Linda. I'll be styling tomorrow.

Hay there,

You are welcome, Mz MaryJane. Its a lot of fun and for my small town to come together is always a hoot. Kids are everywhere and adults are chatting and getting to know each other, some haven't seen each other in years and are there with their grandkids. Lots of fun and community love.

I just realized that I ate my last apple so I'm heading to the store tomorrow.....or my neighbors house!!

I made 8 tarts using the Mennonite apple custard pie recipe. They turned out pretty with a good flavor, but a little too sweet for my liking. If I make it again I will cut the sugar and add lemon juice.
I added one Tsp of apple brandy and I think it added flavor to the pies.

I ate a tart while it was still warm - couldn't wait - maybe when they cool they won't seem as sweet.

we made 20 gallons of apple cider this year. Our trees got a late frost, but still produced plenty of apples. Drinking it fresh is wonderful!! Apple crisp yesterday,couple batches of apple fritters too. Need to get some sauce made up from the cortlands. hope everyone is enjoying their apple creations.

Here is my recipe for Chunky Applesauce that I sent Quiltee ~ Linda O., I add a secret ingredient to give it a bit of heat. My hubby likes chunky not smooth applesauce. My recipe came from the May Real Simple Magazine I just changed a couple of things.

Combine 4 peeled, cut in chunks Granny Smith Apples with the 1/3 cup of sugar, although I do adjust it to taste as we do not like our applesauce too sweet, 1/4 cup water, 1 tsp. vanilla, a pinch of salt and a small bag of red hot cinnamon candy:-) in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook until the water is evaporated and the Apples are tender 10 to 20 minutes depending on the size of your apples. Once finished cooked you can remove any of the candies that have not melted, you applesauce will have a bit of heat and cinnamon flavor. Makes approx. 2 1/2 cups A nice fall treat!

Happy Fall Everyone!







Hugs,
Deb

Debbie, That sounds so good! I bought a bushel of apples yesterday and they make awesome apple sauce. I will have to try your version! My sister and BIL are in Colorado Springs right now and sent me a photo yesterday, that looks almost identical to the one you posted :)! I so love the Aspen Trees in the Fall. Enjoy them for me please.
Hugs, Ruth

We decided to get some exercise after our treats, well, actually, it was a moving feast. Not only did we walk to all of our apple trees and nibble (11 trees total) but we also walked to the old homestead apple trees that surround our farm by following the many deer trails that come and go from the trees.



We found places where the deer not only bed down but also dine on apples.







Some of the apples were apple sauce apples and past their prime. Others were huge and wonderful. The difference in flavors was surprising.



One apple tree we found had a pear tree growing so entangled in it, the pears took us by surprise. Pears growing on a apple tree?



Hubby declared them to be the best pears he's ever eaten.







You wouldn't think sampling apples would make us head back for more apple juice but it did (Ashley also made some spiced apple cider).



What a lovely fall day!
