It's Apple Day! Yesterday we got about 20 pounds of apples from a friend. We started early this morning and finished around 3:00. The girls and I have decided if we have to cut or slice one more apple it will be to many! We have 8 apple pies, 2 miniuture ones, and 8 quarts of apple sauce. I should have made more applesauce and less pies, but we kept thinking of people who we could give a pie to, so the girls decided that was more important! Only one cut finger and of course that was the adult of the group, me! We have a great Dutch Apple Pie recipe we would like to share:
2 C. flour
1 C. packed brown sugar
3/4 C. butter, melted
1/2 C. quick cooking oats

2/3 C. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1-1/4 Cups water
3 C. diced peeled tart apples
1 t. vanilla extract

Combine the first four ingredients; set aside 1 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 9-in. pie plate; set aside. For the filling, sombine sugar, cornstarch and water in a saucepan until smooth; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in apples and vanilla. Pour into curst; top with reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Sounds yummy! You need a peeler, corer, slicer! I have a picture of one on my blog. Check out the label 'apples'. They have them at the Country Store and the General Store. They are oh so handy! :)Have a great day!
