AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE....A COOKBOOK REVIEW IN THE READING CORNER



He likes pie for breakfast.......


and....
we add dairy.......... compliments of Blue Bell.......


You know, if it's a cookbook with Southern recipes
and
deep rooted family favorites, then it's going to be
in Estelle's collection!
THE CHURCH LADIES' DIVINE DESSERTS,
features heavenly recipes and sweet recollections.


"A homemade dessert is a way to demonstrate affection
while scoring the bounty of God's blessing on the home."
~Brenda Rhodes Miller

This cookbook features more than 200 recipes
that were family treasures from the "church ladies"
who have contributed immeasurably to their
communities and churches.
Their stories are inspiring and funny.
They share a common bond, feeling
there should be an extreme importance
placed on the family dinner table!


So my first recipe to try
was of course, the darling's favorite..
APPLE PIE!


APPLE PIE
1 store bought pie crust package
1 egg white
1 t. cinnamon
1 1/2 T. cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 . nutmeg
1 T. lemon juice
5 cups cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
3 T. butter, sliced

Combine the cinnamon, cornstarch, sugar and nutmeg in large mixing bowl.
Sprinkle sliced apples with the lemon juice
and toss in sugar and spice mixture.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. 
Spoon apples in prepared pie crust.
Top with second crust and pinch edges together.
Cut slits in top and brush with egg white.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, of course!
Be sure to spoon some of that warm
cinnamon syrup over the top!

  5. Betsy, who wouldn't want this lovely pie for breakfast?! Your pie is a beauty. I love church cookbooks. They always have those tried and true recipes that are good. I have some apples and some of Susan's pie crust in the freezer. So it looks like apple pie may be in our future. Oh, what a cute rolling pin! ♥

  7. I love apple pie and it has been so long since I had a slice and then you topped it with ice cream!
    I am seriously going to make this recipe for the 4th of July. I love everything about it, including the recipe book it came out of!
    I sure hope you will join us for the next art/craft retreat it would be a joy to meet you.
