Saturday is 4 Dutch Apple Pie's

Hi there did your Saturday go?? Mine was quiet, still taking it easy from my hernia surgery September 3rd. I still tire easily, but at least there has been no gut pain, Hooray for that miracle!!!! I do sleep a lot....but maybe that is part of the healing process.

My exercise consists of walking Kylie every day around the block, shopping at the stores, walking around the house, getting up and down from the chair etc. One of these days I shall have to start doing some yard work and get the house and yard winterized for the long cold winter......uge!!!!
So today I made a Dutch Apple Pie.....found this recipe at one of my favorite recipe sites to visit. My go-to for many of my recipes.
I usually use a pre-made crust....not very good at making real crust, not sure I have even tried, maybe one of these days I shall try.
The pie filling consisted of about 10 apples, a combination of Mollies, Cortland and about 4 McIntosh apples. (Mollies and Cortlands, we bought from the apple orchard last Sunday) Mixed them all together in some lemon juice so they would not brown. Then I drained them and mixed in 3/4 cup Palm sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mixed the apples altogether by hand then poured them into the pie crust.

I over did it on the apples and had enough for a little pie.......sad to say...these two pies may not even last the week-end if JP has his way.

The crumb topping consists of 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup Palm sugar. Mix it altogether till crumbly....if more flour is needed, continue adding till the topping is crumbly.

Note: When I added Palm sugar, it is actually called, Organic Coconut Palm sugar, I bought it at Sam's club and have been using that in place of sugar and brown fine.
So here is the final touch.....a little bit of Cool Whip on a cooled down piece of pie......yum, was this delicious!!!

After I finish this post, I shall head down stairs and do a bit of card making and stamping.....guess my mojo is coming back and "making things" is coming back into my life again.....Hooray for small miracles!!!

You all have a great weekend and Lord willing, I will see you in a few days. My week is pretty much open, guess that means another week of rest and getting my strength built up. Never realized how much surgery can knock one out......I forgot!!!

I have another order of Blue Apron coming this week.....this one should be fun, a gourmet pizza, mushroom tacos and a cauliflower  salad.....looking forward to these recipes.

You all keep looking up and better days are coming!!!!
Cheers ~ Louise

Louise, I bet your house smelled so good. That is what I missed this weekend. It was so darn cold Saturday barely reached is sweet 71. But yesterday being rainy and cold...I should have made stew, soup or roast ...But Emma was here and she eats only two things beef patties and chicken. I think I am going to have to make her eat what I fix...Our mother gave us that choice eat or leave it. You know. Blessings for a beautiful new week. xoxo,Susie
