Swedish Apple Pie

The days are pretty busy around here right now.  I've been sorting out things that were relocated for the house repairs and renovation and trying to pull my craft room back to some semblance of order.  I've also been designing up a storm - on projects that I won't be able to show you right away - I think you will like them!

I had a lot of requests for apple recipes after my post yesterday.  There is nothing like a crisp apple to eat fresh but they also are wonderful baked in pies with lots of cinnamon.  This recipe is a favorite because it can be made pretty quickly (there is no crust) and it always is delicious.  You can use any type of apples - you might want to adjust the recipe for the sweetness to suit the variety you choose.

Robert's Swedish Apple Pie

5 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, mixed together
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 egg
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Butter or spray pie pan (8 or 9 inch) and fill 2/3 full with apple slices.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar mixture on top of the apples.
Melt butter, add sugar and egg and mix well.
Add flour and nuts, pour over apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (until apples are cooked and pie is golden brown)

These tangles of ribbon are for a project that I'll post as soon as it is finished.  The ribbons were used on the drinking "glasses" at our nephew's wedding celebration.

Using wide Mason jars as drinking glasses is a family "tradition" for my husband and his relatives.  I don't know who started this, but it is a practical use for the empty jars between canning seasons.  The ribbons helped to make the tables more colorful and festive.

 I added this photo just to show the difference between taking a photo with flash (first photo) and then with only natural light.  As a general rule, I like to omit the flash but sometimes you really need it to get a clear and colorful image.

I thought I had a photo of the pie (I am sure that I do!) but it was too late to search for the photo and also too late to make another pie for a photo session!  I'll add the photo to this post when I run across it.

It's Columbus Day weekend already, where is the time going this year?  I hope  you have a safe and happy weekend - we are staying home after all of our recent travels, we just want to stay put for a while.

  6. Can't wait to try the recipe, thanks for sharing. I called my hubby at work and asked him to stop at the store to buy 5 apples on his way home. He'll do anything for pie, LOL. Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Thanks for the recipe. You probably won't believe this but I just bought a peck of apples yesterday and they are "New York State Apples" from Walden, NY. Is that anywhere near your family's place?

  8. When I was a little girl and went to see my relatives who lived 100 miles away, we always had to drink out of mason jars. They were the "poor" relatives! Now it's cool to drink out of jars. So funny!
