Well Autumn is finally upon us! I love this time of year. It seems like I am able to accomplish so much more with this cooler weather! Fresh Apple pies, (8 quarts of Apples in the freezer too) mama cows, chasing chickens, kitties and Turkey Table toppers!
The leaves are not near as pretty this year as they normally are, but I did gain some inspiration for my Autumn Table Runner! I think Fall colors are my favorite! I really enjoyed working on this Patchwork of the Crosses runner. I made the three POTC blocks and appliqued them onto the background. I still have to applique the divider squares. I love the background and border fabrics. I just need to decide how to quilt it! It will finish at 18"x 42". I decided to put a few kits in my ETSY shop. These are pretty simple blocks with very easy fussy cutting, so it will make a great beginner project! I can't wait to get it finished and on my table!
Our next Sew Simple Saturday Linky Party will be November 7th! I have been working on a cute little project for that also! Are you planning on linking up? We will once again have a great thread set from Aurifil and a gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop! So get those tips, techniques and tutorials ready to Link up!
And here is the recipe for my Apple Pie:
. 6 cups assorted sliced Cooking Apples ( Sun Crisp, Mutsu,Rome Beauty,Stayman,Ozark Gold are a few of the varieties for our area)
. 1/2 cup or less of sugar ( I am diabetic, plus these apples are so good you don't need much sugar)
. Dash or two of cinnamon
. Pinch of table salt ( helps bring out the juice of the apples)
. few pats of butter
. prepared pie crusts
When I am short on time I like to use Pillsbury Ready to Use Refrigerated Crusts.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Unroll one of the pie crust and lay it in the pie dish.
Combine sugar,salt and cinnamon until well blended.
Sprinkle Sugar mixture over the 6 cups of sliced Apples and toss until well coated. Dump into pie crust.
Let apples sit for 15 minutes or so until juice starts drawing out.
Dot apples with butter.
Cover with second crust , press edges together and cut slits in top of pie to allow steam to escape.
Cover edges with foil to prevent burning.
Bake in 425 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, remove foil and continue baking until edges are golden brown and apples are bubbling.
Remove and let cool for as long as you can stand it! Then cut and enjoy!
Mmmmmm! The pie above didn't last long with the hunny around, so I guess it's time to make another!
Happy Fall ya'll! Thank you for stopping by! Be sure and get those projects ready for the next linky party!
