Katy at Creating Misericordia asked me to select the word for this week.

I had an ABUNDANCE of apples, so I made a Dutch Apple Pie for dessert tonight. Our Thanksgiving includes both Pumpkin Pie & Dutch Apple pie...  I'm ready to welcome NOVEMBER & getting my holiday planning started...

6-8 tart green apples
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves & nutmeg
9" unbaked pie crust

Peel & cut apples into thick slices. 
Sprinkle with lemon juice to keep the apples from turning brown.

Measure & sprinkle sugar & spices 
(cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg) over the sliced apples. 

Arrange apples slices in unbaked pie crust.

3/4 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 c butter
Mix crumb topping ingredients until mixture 
resembles coarse crumbs. Spread evenly over apple slices. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

Serve with ice cream or thin slices of EDAM cheese! 
Yummy to the tummy!

  1. Hi,

    Your house must smell wonderful after baking that pie. I love pies with crumb toppings but I hate, hate peeling apples. I bought Heather an apple peeler and maybe I should get one for myself. (-: Great tutorial!

  2. That looks delicious! I made my first ever pumpkin pie yesterday so I was feeling quite virtuous, but I can't remember the last time I made a crumble (much to Matt's distress, he absolutely loves the stuff!).

  3. Yummy yummy!

    I'll play this week!

  4. That looks gorgeous! Count me in for 'Abundance'...

  5. Hey Chris! I also was in the BTW session 2(and last Jan.). Your WeekWord sounds interesting, count me in. Just tell me what I should do next :)

  6. I love Apple Pie with a fierce passion! I'll be traveling in Ohio this week so I might be a skoosh late, but I'm in for abundance :)

  7. I could eat some apples right now...hihi...
    I might be a bit late to post...but I´m in...Abundance...??? think think ;)

  8. I'm in! I wish you could send me some pie to help me think of a good blog post though, I'm sure it would help >)

  9. Your apple pie looks delicious! Wish I had a piece right now! In the meantime, I'll be thinking of what "abundance" means to me. I'll let you know later if I am going to participate. Thanks! :)

  10. I WISH I could send everyone a slice of this pie! JPE told me it's his favorite!!!

    Looking forward to having an "ABUNDANCE" of bloggers to visit this Friday evening - I'll be driving home from Sacramento (6 hour drive - but I have a couple of books to listen to)...

    Will continue adding WEEKWORD bloggers to the list which will be posted Friday am... Leave me a note if you'd like to participate!

  11. I'm in!

    (I make apple pie and leave the apple peels on sometimes... no complaints yet!)

  12. Hi,

    Just wanted you to know that I will be participating in Weekword this week...see you there!

  13. Yummy :) Thank you for your thoughtful post, all is well, a busy time, but I would love to participate. Thank you for thinking of me! This is a great word choice.

  14. Hello, I'm here via :) I'd like to join in with Weekword! :)

  15. I made the Dutch Apple pie with a combination of Cortland, MacIntosh and Pears! No crust (because I can't do crusts ): Your recipe is so yummy it is going into the 'continuing' cookbook. Keep up the good work; I enjoy reading your blog.

  16. Oh wow, how yummy is that? (OMG, I sound like Rachel Ray!) Love your pictures that accompany the recipe. Yes, and I'll play around this time, will post on Friday sometime in the morning.

  17. yummy, good idea taking pictures of the ingredients.
