Let’s Cook!

With fall season upon us, it’s time to be thinking “apples”!  R. K. Kirch of St. Clair County has sent  two apple recipes for us to try.  I have not tried either of these yet, but I think this first one will please those who like apple pie, but dread making pie crust.

No Crust Apple Pie

   submitted by R.K. Kirch

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup flour

5 apples

     Slice apples, put into baking dish (pie plate). Stir together remaining ingredients, spread over the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Apple Pudding

   submitted by R.K. Kirch

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped nuts

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups apples, peeled, cored and grated

     Sift dry ingredients. Add egg, vanilla, nuts and apples. Pour into a greased 8 inch baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

     She also included this recipe for dog treats. It calls for bacon drippings so you know your dog is gonna love these! It sounds like a great way to use up that bacon grease.

Canine Treats
