Simply Sweet

Wednesday was a baking day. I modified a recipe I once again found on MAY ALL SEASONS BE SWEET TO THEE

I had apples I froze last fall that needed to be used so I decided to make this lovely pastry instead of a pie. I let the apples steep in the sugar and spices as I would for a pie, but I followed the pastry recipe, save using shortening. I used coconut oil instead, which Dawn introduced me to as well.

My waistline is not benefiting, but this sweet treat is wonderful with a cup of camomile tea. If you have some apples or pears that need using go check out the recipe. Fruit filled pastry delights!


  1. Ok, they are just too close for comfort and I can't even have one! Looks delicious...maybe you should start a cooking blog...with lessons!

  2. Oooh yum, those look simpley packed with delicious, cinnamony apple...nice work!

  3. Those are on my list, for next week. I cook for 30-40 people twice amonth and like to add something sweet for the end of the day. Something I can bag up to go.

    "on the list" is not a commitment; only a possibility.

  4. Judy, they are good. No more blogs for me!

    country girl, you need to stop putting new ways for me to get fat online. : )

    gsc, they are easy to make and very good. And they will bag easily.

  5. Oh, I love your sweets photos...am inspired. I get lazy about baking and then I see your pics and want some so......I guess I will bake too! Sigh.

  6. You had me until the coconut oil. My hubby practically drinks it. Ick.

  7. little bite-sized pieces of pie! that sounds fantastic!!

  8. Debra, it does take a lot of time, but it's winter so there is a little more time inside. Bake away!

    Queen, coconut oil is great for baking, but not so much for drinking. : )

    Julocka, they are good!


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
