Preheat the oven to 375o
For the filling:
6 cups of a tart apple (granny smith is my favorite) peeled, cored & sliced
¾ c. sugar
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ c. water
1 tbsp. butter, softened
It took 5 granny smith apples to yield just over 6 cups
Place the apples in a bowl. Combined the dry ingredients above and pour over the apples, add the vanilla extract and water. Mix well.
Spray a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray and pour the mixture into the dish. Drop pieces of butter on top of the apples.
For the topping:
½ c. all purpose flour, sifted
½ c. sugar
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. butter, softened
1 egg, beaten
Combine the ingredients above and beat with a fork until it is a smooth consistency. Place spoonfuls on the batter evenly on top of the apples.
Bake for 35 minutes (your oven may vary), make sure the apples are tender.
I'm wearing Mary Grace's apron, green side showing...for the apples of course!
This serves about 8
Serve with your favorite ice cream J Our favorite is French vanilla but my DH has discovered French vanilla gelato.
I'm linking up to Karen's Sew Darn Crafty Linky Party...Theme Week
After the cobbler was finished, it was time for a cup of tea and some stitching.
Remember my DD’s graduation quilt that I first shared here?
I haven’t worked on it much after cutting everything out…that is until last weekend when I finished piecing all of the blocks.
This weekend I started sewing the blocks into rows. I joined three rows together just to give you some idea as to how it will look.
You can vaguely see the little seashells on the white background
Three rows together and ten more to go… After the borders are added, this quilt will measure 91” x 105”. I will try to finish the quilt top, backing and the pillow shams by the end of next weekend. I want to send everything to the LAQ so the shams can be quilted at the same time as the top.
I’m also finishing helmet liner #6. You can read more about those here. I’ve committed to knitting 9 liners this campaign. I would try to do more but we have quite a few participating knitters this year and I know we will have a lot to donate. The Forgotten Soldiers Organization will include them in their Christmas mailing to the soldiers which is scheduled for November.It’s been a busy and WAY too fast weekend here. I hope you have enjoyed yours J
