I tell ya with all the company that's been at the Farmhouse I've been a busy "cooker" - but mostly summer time food - you know grilling, salads and fruit. BUT as I said a few posts back - the nesting has settled in.
Mr. Farmhouse's brother came for an overnight visit on Saturday and my goodness the weather was AWESOME - they had lots of time for fishing out on the boat and a little dock fishing as well - with deep conversations about life and fish :)
where I was told the big one got away - ya right lol
Anywho in honor of his visit I made an oldie but goodie dessert from a recipe that I had recently found again. This is a recipe that I received from one of their relatives that we had been close to before our move up here years ago . I can't remember the last time I whipped up this dessert but I know it's been way I mean way to many years. So in honor of her and the BIL's visit I dug it out and whipped it up. It's perfect for apple season which is just around the corner and super fast to make - perfect for a last minute dessert.
Now it's not a pretty dessert - it's a bit on the plain side - but it's good and moist and just simply yummy. The name for it on the recipe card in her writing is Apple Dessert - plain and simple, just like the dessert.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tbsp hot water
- 1/2 cup nuts - optional
- 2 1/2 cups diced and peeled apples - I used Granny Smith because that's what I had
Cream butter and sugar together until mixed. Add egg and rest of ingredients. Grease a 9" pie plate and spread in mixture. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until pick inserted comes out clean. Mine took about 50 minutes - but I would check at 40 just so it doesn't over bake. Serve with whipped cream. I think adding some raisins would be good to - nice plump ones.
My other yummy to share with you is this hooked rug I got in the mail on Saturday (sorry for the shadow from me lol)
isn't she a beauty - a real yummy treat for fall decorating. I purchased this hooked rug from Rhonda over at My Glory Stars. I've purchased several things from her over time and I love every single one I've gotten. Her colors are wonderful and her workmanship is A+++++. I can't wait to put it up and get the house ready for fall. At some point I really need to try rug hooking - lord knows I've got the wool for it lol.
Until Next Time
