Apples, Yum!!!

Yesterday I decided to bake some little apple popovers as an after school snack for my munchkins. I turned on some accent lights around the house and the air was filled with the lovely smell of baking apples and cinnamon. When my 9 yr old son walked in the door, he looked around and walked from room to room. He then very sincerely said " I really like the Fall decorating you did, the house feels so cozy". My mouth dropped and then smiled. I was shocked that he noticed such a small details as the lights, but was so happy that he noticed and that my efforts for a nice home for my munchkins doesn't go unappreciated. And the best part was, I didn't do one stitch of fall decorating!!! All I did was turn on small little lights around the house that cast a warm glow. But obviously, that was enough. I did put some fall things outside, but have decided not to drag up my 10 boxes of fall decor from the basement this year. It's a lot of work, and with a new baby and still trying to revamp the house, I just don't have the time or energy. And what a treat it will be next year to see all my decor that was tucked away this year.

Now, on to the very easy apple popover recipe(my own creation, though I'm sure many of you have your own version).

1 can of refrigerated flaky biscuits
2 large apple(your choice what kind, I used cortland)
1/2 C of brown sugar(you could use white)
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
pinch of salt
couple tablespoons of butter

Using non stick muffin tins, divide the 8 biscuits in half(they are the flaky ones so they separate easily) and place the now 16 biscuits in the tins. Gently form them to a cup like shape but don't press them in. Peel the two apples and cut them into small chunks(1/2" or so). Place apples chunks in bowl, add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg,and salt. Mix well and then spoon into the center of biscuits. Add a small pat of butter to the top of each one. Bake at 375 until golden brown. Remove from pan right away and let cool on rack(it's just easier to remove them while they are still hot, because when they cool the sugar can stick). Super easy and a yummy treat with very few ingredients.

And this morning I made two apples pies for dessert tonight. I bought some heavy cream to make fresh whipped cream too.
And look who is officially crawling in the last couple of days! My baby is growing up way too fast.

Have a splendid Fall Day,

  5. I opted to scale back on my fall decorating this year also. After pulling out the different fallish quilting projects I have done, I decided that a few small pumpkins here and there were all I really needed this year....that and a few yummy candles. :) With a 2 year old running around everyday, my house is "decorated" with toys....maybe next year I will pull out the tubs of decorations. :) Your pies look delish!
