Farm Apple Pie
8 apples - peeled, cored and sliced (enough for a regular pie, needed more for deep dish)
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400* F.
Divide pastry in half; roll out bottom crust to fit your pie plate & extend over the edges. Place crust in the pan.
Alternate layers of apples & sugar mixture on the bottom crust.
Roll out the top crust slightly larger than pan & place on top of the apple filling. Turn the extended top crust under to bottom crust at the edges and pinch to seal. Make small slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.
Here's what I thought about this recipe: it was good, could have used more apples, which I noted above. Hubby really liked the crust (I'm not a fan of crust but it was good).
One of the things my Granny used to make for me when I was a kid was strawberries with milk & sugar. It was a treat, especially when we spent the day out picking the berries in a field. If there weren't any berries we sometimes had peaches with milk & sugar.
This morning for breakfast I had a peach that needed to be used up & since the kids were having blueberries with their eggs & back, I thought, I would be nostalgic & have some peaches with milk for breakfast. Except I added the blueberries and instead of sugar, a swirl of honey.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend. I'll be back in the morning with Scrap with Me Saturday & then I'll be off, kid-free to go to a photo shoot with twin newborn boys!
