Apple Darlings

In my last post I talked about the waiting I've been doing over the last few years. So I decided to post about some of the fun things I've been doing in the meantime. I don't want my life to be on hold! I want to live & enjoy life even while I'm waiting to hold that little baby in my arms! :)

So here was a recent culinary adventure. :)

Wanna see what put a big smile on Hubby's face??

I started out with a pie crust recipe made with flour, shortening & cold water. I rolled it out & used my new handy dandy pastry cutter to cut 6 in. x 6 inch squares.

Next came a spoonful of small apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

I topped the apples with a large dollop of my homemade apple butter. Mmmmmm.... Fall was definitely in the air while making these!!

Next I folded them up like so and....

cut some little leaves to go on top.

I wanted a crispy, shiny crust, so I brushed it with milk and sprinkled sugar on top!

In you go, my little apple darlings! I baked them starting at 300 and eventually went up to 350. I totally improvised!

Out you come, all toasty & brown!

What a delicious treat!!! Homemade apple pie in a darling little crust! Just right for one person!
