I've heard somewhere that doing one small task first thing in the morning will get the day off to a good start. I came across this quote the other day, and it struck me equally as important.

Something as small as dirty dishes in my sink meant I had plenty of good food to eat.

Apple Crunch Pie

{Apple Crunch Pie}

Just found this recipe in a Woman's Day Magazine, 2004.  I just love the crunchie topping on this apple pie.

Make 1 bottom pie crust for 9'' pie (mine was homemade but the recipe recommends buying a store bought crust)

Crumb topping:
1/2 C plus 2 T flour
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/3 C white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick butter, cold, cut into small pieces

7 medium to large apples
1 T lemon juice
1/2 C white sugar
3 T flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg

Topping:  Mix flour, sugars, and cinnamon, cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture forms moist, coarse, crumbs that clump together easily.

Filling:  Peel, quarter and core apples.  Cut in 1/8'' thick slices. Put into a large bowl and toss with lemon juice to coat.  Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl, sprinkle over apple slices, toss to coat.

Layer apple slices in pie shell, pat topping over apples to form a top crust.
Place pie in 450 degree oven for 15 min. then reduce oven to 350 degrees and bake 45 min., topping should be brown.  Serve alone or with ice cream while warm.

Around the Office

 {New pig shaped cookie cutters will be available soon in our stores} 

Things are starting to cool down here in the Midwest. We're enjoying the crisp fresh air with windows opened and the air-conditioning turned off. We decided to add a new cookie cutter into the mix since our seafood ones have taken off. Now you can pick up a pig shaped cookie cutter to make desserts to go along with our BBQ bibs.

Peach Pie

Delicious melts in your mouth peach pie. I made several pies this year with the over flow of peaches I received. I also tried my hand at peach sorbet, but nothing will beat these peach pies. My husband said these were some of the best pies I had ever made.

Recipe for a 9" pie
5 c. sliced peaches
1 t. lemon juice
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. flour
1/4 t. cinnamon
Mix altogether with peaches.  Pour into an unbaked crust and top with 2 T of butter.  Cover with top crust, sprinkle with sugar and bake 425 degrees for 35-45 min.
