Apple Crumb Pie...Foodie Friday
This is my all time favorite baking pan to use in Autumn. I purchased this baking dish the first time I was visiting California many years ago. It was my first time ever shopping in a Crate & Barrel in the Stanford Mall. I remember being so impressed by an outside type of Mall with colorful flowers and trees and an outside escalator. Gosh I sound like I had been locked up for years. I was in my glory walking, well running really, up and down the aisles of Crate & Barrel. Pots and pans and kitchen gizmo's gadgets make me so happy. When I spotted this ceramic apple dish I was so excited. I could think of a dozen recipes to bake in this dish. My husband is the type of guy who if I like something he has to buy it for me on the spot. So we purchased the dish. It is quite heavy. We never thought to even have it shipped home. We toted the apple dish from hotel to hotel and from car to car and from airport to airport. Every Autumn I take this dish out of my cabinet and have the most fun baking in it. It brings back fun memories of California and also all the wonderful people who have shared a dessert with us.
Today I wanted to try a new recipe for apple crumb pie. You can find the recipe HERE at allrecipes.com . My house smells wonderful and I bet there will not be any crumbs left on anyone's plate.
