Thankful Thursday - Apples

Thankfulness. I am thankful for our great neighbor who let's me jump the fence to pick his apples! I'm not much of a raw apple girl but I have found to be a fan of cooked apples (of the baked variety). And who can say "no" to free apples? Not this girl.  Especially since we are on a serious budget with me being a SAHM now. 

I mean gorgeous and delicious right?  So I am busy baking Apple Pies, Apple Bread, Apple Coffeecake, and any other apple dish I can come up with!! (Plus some for our generous neighbor to show our thankfulness!)

What are you thankful for?


Apple Pie

2 1/4 cups Flour
1/3 cup Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 sticks Butter (cold and cubed)
5 T Ice Water

Directions: Pre-heat Oven to 375

1. In a food processor combine Flour, Sugar and Salt. Then add Butter and pulse until crumbs appear. With food processor on slowly add 3 T of ice Water. If dough does not come together add more water 1/2 T at a time. 

2. Once dough comes together dump it out on a well Floured surface and divide into two balls.  Dust rolling pin with flour and roll out dough to fit pie pan. Set aside in fridge. 

A bunch of apples
2 T flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 


1. Peel, core and slice Apples and put into large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. 

2. Dump filling into pie dish and dot with 2 T cold Butter. Cover with 2 half of pie dough, crimp edges and cut slits to let steam out. 

3. Bake for 40 minutes with foul covering edge of crust (to avoid over browning) then remove foil and bake for additional 20 minutes or until bubbling in center. 


  1. It must be apple day :)! I pinned your recipe. Now I am off to find the pumpkin one!

  2. oooh I love apples. I wish my neighbors had apples to grab! I love apple pie.

  3. Yay for free apples and a real apple tree to! Have you made homemade appleasause? I did when C was a baby and I would freeze it so it lasted and just thaw it in the fridge when I needed it for her (or me) and it was really yummy warm too!
