I know. Another apple post. It's a quick one I promise, because I am. still. processing. apples...
Today I'm making more apple butter, and may I say that,
1. It is not only shocking how many apples 2 full size trees can produce in a good year, but...
2. Your enthusiasm for making the most of them decreases in direct proportion to how many bushels are piling up in the garage and how many you have already made into pie, cider, apple butter, apple sauce, dried apples, frozen apples and any other permutation you can think of to make the most of what used to seem like a wonderful bounty.
Still, I cannot bring myself to waste food when so many go hungry. I soldier on.
This recipe is one I found on Pinterest and they looked so cute and delicious I had to try them. Besides, I had a few apples laying around...
And they are every bit as adorable and delicious as they look! Warm out of the oven, Lord have mercy. We couldn't stop eating them. I used a little vintage ruffled biscuit cutter set I found at a garage sale to cut them out and added a few tablespoons of maple syrup to the sugar filling just out of curiosity. ♥ Love ♥
We will make these again. they are a little fussy, with cutting and assembling, but totally worth it to serve with tea or coffee or a tall glass of milk. These would be perfect for a child's lunch box!
The recipe made about 18 and you can find it here.
And now, back to the kitchen. I have a few apples to cut up.
What projects are you working on right now?
