Dutch Apple Pie – Streusel Topping

Dutch Apple Pie – Streusel Topping

Dutch Apple Pie Dutch Apple Pie was known as Sour Cream Apple Pie in my house when I was growing up. It was a once-a-year treat, always at Thanksgiving. Pies in general, unless it was pumpkin pie, were a holiday treat. This might have made Dutch Apple Pie special in one way but the decadent, somewhat old fashioned, filling, deliciousness of this pie would have kept it special if we’d had it every week. It’s hearty, not overly sweet (cut…

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp – No Artificial Sugar Added

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp – No Artificial Sugar Added

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp Picking cherries is a labor of love. Our trees are wild so we don’t know what they are, and they are not a variety we’d have chosen. The fruits aren’t close together in a convenient group so it’s a lot of up and down the ladder to get the three cups I need for Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp. It’s worth it. I love cherries and this recipe is so quick and simple it can be made…

This recipe works with frozen strawberries but you’ll need to be very careful to drain the juice. Save that juice! You can make strawberry jelly. Do you know the proper way to harvest…

Mincemeat Cookies – Mincemeat and Cookie Recipes

Mincemeat Cookies Mincemeat cookies? Really? ohh…no, thanks. I don’t really like mincemeat. “You’ll like these,” Erin Merrill said as she nudged the plate across the table a few inches. I resisted for a while. Erin looked from me to the cookies and back again several times, nudging them now and then. “They’re gooood.” Erin’s convincing, and as mom to my favorite little guy, she’s kind of hard to resist. She was right. These cookies are fantastic. There isn’t a lot…

Salted Caramel Apple Pie Recipe

Salted Caramel Apple Pie Recipe

Salted Caramel Apple Pie Recipe Salted caramel apple pie is my new go-to pie for potluck suppers, Thanksgiving dinner, having guests over, and girlfriends’ lunch when it’s my turn to host here on the homestead. Steve takes it to office luncheons.  This pie is rich, sweet and immensely satisfying so you might consider a smaller-than-usual slice. Hahaha…no. Eat the pie. Enjou the pie. I am all for kids in the kitchen. Mine started cooking when they were three or four…
