So, I decided I needed a button. So grab it here!
Hello all, I hope you had a great and fun Halloween. You might never believe this, but me, the one who has never really been trick-or-treating, went to a Halloween party last night. Meg and Luke are a good influence on me. Here are some pictures of our homemade costumes. Well, Dan’s isn’t homemade, he really works for Firestone 😀
Jack Bauer, who has an air-soft gun by the way, and our neighborhood mechanic, also known as my hubby.
Our local ballerina and Waldo wondering how you found her.
So the first round of deserts were a hit. everyone really seemed to like them. And everywhere I go, the apple pear crumble pie is a really big hit. So I decided to share my recipe with everyone. I got the original recipe of kraftfoods.com. I heart kraftfoods.com big time. Here is a direct link. I however never follow a recipe exactly. I just can’t do it. So, here is my version of this recipe.
40 ish Vanilla Wafters – crushed
1/3 cup brown sugar – packed
1/3 cup butter – melted
1 Pie Crust – mine is a ready made one from Pillsbury, I was leery of the off brands in this case
3 apples – sliced
2 pears – sliced
1/3 cup granualted sugar
1/3 cup flour
2 very healthy shakes of cinnamon
Heat your oven to 375
Make sure your fruit is sliced. Mix wafer crumbs, butter and brown sugar.
Mix apples, pears, granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon.
Put pie dough in bottom of pie pan, and spread cream cheese mixture to cover the bottom of pie. Dump fruit mixture, spread crumb mixture on top.
The fruit will be very full, so you have to kind of arrange it in the pan, but it makes for a full pie and pie filling is my favorite. The crumb mixture will be gooey like, so spread it on top of the fruit the best you can.
Bake for 35 min, covering after 25 with foil. Once crust is brown and fruit look soft, you are done!! I know the immediate this to do at this point would be to eat it, but it really is best if you put it in the fridge and chill until cold. Although it was good warm 😀
So, I didn’t have any time to do anything crafty tonight, but there is a good reason. I spent the whole night baking. I made two pumpkin cheesecakes and two pear apple crumble pies. I’m pretty sure that the pies turned out good because I’ve made that recipe before. I hope that the pumpkin cheesecakes are good. I made so much baked goods because we are going to an office party tomorrow. By office party, I mean we are watching the office, the amazing tv show. And the other set is for my family that is coming this weekend!! So the posts might be kind of sketchy till next week, but I’ll try to take pictures and post all the fun.
So, no crafty updates today. Just a little blurb about something that I’ve been meaning to write on here. While my good friend Jess was here we went to a garage sale. One of the sales we went to had so much pretty glass bowl things. I love pretty glass things. Well, I wanted to share with Jess what I did with my pretty little bowl.
We even had blue q-tips to put in them. No, I didn’t go buy them, we already had them. I love pretty glass things.
