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.

  2. I loved this story. Every year I make my special Yam recipe for Thanksgiving in my amber colored oblong Pyrex dish. I got that big glass dish by saving stamps from our local grocery store when the kiddos were little. A few years ago it accidentally broke in the sink. I got right on Ebay and replaced it so that no one would be disappointed on Thanksgiving Day. That dish is part of our family now. : ) Aren't we girls silly?

  14. I fell in love with Crate and Barrel in Seattle the first time I walked in! Now while in Virginia I enjoy shopping there it is just hard to bring everything I want back on the plane!:)We need our own.
    The Apple Pie must smell devine. It sure looks pretty.
    I absolutely LOVE you send cookies to our armed forces. I can see why snickerdoodles would be so perfect! You are a GOOD woman.:-)
