We planted our apple. Our very own apple tree! Of course, I say “we” when actually I had nothing to do with it other than counting the apples. Mike did all the planting, watering, fertilizing and I couldn’t be certain, but I think I heard him talking to our apple tree. 😀
We decided to harvest our apple tree on the first day of autumn. Mike wanted a photo op with me in my favorite apron and a basket. So here it is…don’t laugh.
Do I hear laughing?
Now it’s time for the apples’ photo op. All sixteen of them in an apple basket. How many make a bushel?
My favorite apple photo. Smiling pretty and standing tall.
All sixteen at attention.
Okay, enough photos.
Now for the chopping block!
I have to tell you it was hard to make that first cut. 🙁
Here’s where I would love to tell you that I have a delicious old fashion apple pie recipe…but I don’t!
What I did do was take ingredients from a couple of different recipes that sounded good and did my own thing. It was yummy and perfect with ice cream on top.
I wanted a crust for the top, Mike likes crumbled topping. So, I made a crust/crumble topping. To make it pretty I looked the kitchen over for a leaf shape cutter. Really thought I had one…hum.
Aha! I found this little guy. I think it’s a turkey.
So I cut out 4 turkeys shapes from the pie crust. Cut them in half.
Then stuck the “feather” back halves together to form a leaf shape.
Yum! You can’t tell in the photo but it’s still bubbling!
Can’t you smell it!
