Apple Recipes


Manuela of "The Feathered Nest", asked me what recipes I was going to make for Apples of Gold, so I thought I would post them.
First is my husband's favorite "English Apple Pie" This pie has no crust just a great topping, which is very different from a crumb or streusel topping.
Preheat ove to 375 degrees
Peel and slice about 4-6 apples (depending on size)
Mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1 tsp of cinnamon - pour over and mix into the apples. Pour the apples into pie pan.
In a mixing bowl combine; 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar. Beat.
Mix in 1 cup of flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, 3 TBSP water, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
Dollop mixture on the top of the apples, and bake on the lowest rack in the oven for 45-50 minutes.
It is very easy and delicious. It is especially good with vanilla ice cream!
As a side note - I always double the amount of apples and bake it in a 9x13 pan. I used to double the topping as well, but lately I keep the topping amount the same. Did I mention my husband really likes this pie! So do the kids!
The second recipe I have never made but comes from the kitchen of my friend Betty.
Apple Cheese Dessert
1 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups of flour
Mix together. Press into 9x13 pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 4 minutes. Cool.
16 oz. Cream Cheese
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat these ingredients together and pour over cooled crust.
Slice 4 cups apples. Mix with 2/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Pour over cream cheese mixture. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes and then 375 degrees for 25-35 minutes.
I am going to make this one soon - I think my family will enjoy it and I need to make it before I share it with the ladies.
Let me know if you make the recipes and how you like them!

  2. Thank you for posting those recipes! They both look deelish. I really like the apple pie one as it seems it may be low cal/low fat since there's no crust on the bottom. I've copied both try. Keep us updated on the program, it sounds really great!
