Fat Friday... and a Trip

I have missed several Fay Friday Recipes, so I thought it was time to post one. With apple season upon us I thought I'd share my paper bag apple pie recipe.

Paper Bag Apple Pie
1 unbaked pie shell
peeled & sliced or shredded apples (enough to fill the pie shell)
1/2 c sugar
1 Tbsp flour

Mix together everything but cinnamon and put in unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle cinnamon over top and slice butter pats here and there. Then put on topping.

6 Tbsp butter
3/4 c brown sugar packed
1/2 c flour

Mix together (I use two knives to cut it in together) and put on top of apples. Should be crumbly. Slip pie into a brown grocery bag or heavy paper bag and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Watch closely if using a gas stove so it doesn't catch fire. The bag might start smelling funny in the oven but it'll be ok you won't taste it in the pie. Enjoy!

My hubby took my son to a farm nearby that each fall has corn mazes, pumpkins, a playground, etc. I wasn't able to go do to working and my DD thought that she was too old to go. It was a Dad and son outing. I told my son to be sure his Dad took the camera so I could have pictures.

I think he's still waiting on Cinderella...

I'll take one of each.

Couldn't we all do this. Sell the bags and clothes for scarecrows. Who'd a thunk... LOL

Pin It

I love how they have all the pumpkins stacked, that is alot of pumpkins. Clothes for a scarecrow? Neat idea I would probably buy because neither one of us has the overalles:)
PS Your son looks so cute with the Cinderalla pumpkin.

Kimberly said... if we guess how many pumpkins are in the pile, do we get a prize...?

Have a great weekend!

Blessings, Kimberly

What a great picture of the pile of pumpkins. :) That place reminds me of our local pumpkin patch. They had a great idea of selling "scarecrow in a bag" kits. :)

Thanks for the yummy recipes! Have a great Friday!

Love that pile of pumpkins! All your pictures today are eye candy to me! It reminds me of the place that I used to take my kids to when they were little. I miss those days.
Thanks for bringing back fond memories.
