Apple Custard Crisp

When I joined the group, only two desserts had been made so it was an easy catch-up for me. This was the remaining dessert I had not made. Now that it is fall and apples are in season I decided to make this warm and cozy dessert. This was not our favorite, we enjoy a…

Martine’s Lemon and Apple Tart

I am posting late this week, Thursdays with Dorie?, because I wanted to make this tart for my anniversary which happens to be today. This monumental year of 2020 is having me celebrate all kinds of milestones at home. I can also see my planned vacation, a cruise, vanish before my eyes. But on to…

Cornmeal and Fruit Loaf

On Tuesdays with Dorie it is Rewind week, a recipe make-up. I am all caught up but still wanted to bake. I dusted off my copy of Baking From My Home to Yours as there are many recipes I still have not made. I had an open carton of buttermilk which is one of the…

Petite Apple Croustades

These petite packages were a fun way to usher in a new season. This is an apple filled dessert with phyllo dough. I used a mix of apples; Gala, Fuji and Golden Delicious. I flavored mine with brandy as that is the alcohol I had on hand. Despite Dorie’s modifications from the original, this is…

Applesauce

I Heart Cooking Clubs Snacks and Beginnings Nothing says Fall like a dish of homemade applesauce. This is not a dish I normally make but it sounded like a fun idea. Ruth states “applesauce practically makes itself” so I figured it would be pretty easy. The recipe calls for 6 apples, I used a variety…

Apple Matafan

I have never made or tasted a matafan. Dorie describes it as a large apple pancake. In the division of labor in my house, pancakes come under my husband’s job description. I gave him the recipe and said “you’re in charge”. Good timing too as I ended up sick this weekend and probably would not…

Apple Weekend Cake

Tuesdays with Dorie Baking Chez Moi According to Dorie this recipe is from the Normandy region of France. For this cake she suggests using sweet, juicy apples so I went with Jazz apples which are a fusion between a Royal Gala and a Bareburn Apple. My notes for this recipe were moist, delicious, easy and…

Apple Pie Cupcakes

These apple pie cupcakes were fun to make, cute to look at and delicious to eat. I made these cupcakes to round out my Thanksgiving table and they were well worth the effort. The cupcake is flavored with the warm spice of cinnamon. The apple pie filling was delicious and is put on after 12…

Apple Clfouti

This week at I Heart Cooking Clubs we are cooking from this month’s featured ingredient; apples or pears. The recipe from Barefoot in Paris by Ina Garten is made with pears but I made mine with apples. A clafouti is a new French dessert for me. Ina describes it as a pancake-like batter poured over…

Crumb-Topped Apple Bars

Tuesdays with Dorie Dorie’s Cookies I made these for a dinner party I was attending. My husband said “the apple bars are getting rave reviews”. And sure enough they all disappeared. This was a great ending to a bar cookie that got a rocky start. I had a few challenges this week with this recipe….
