Crafting Yummies with Apples

When you come home with bushels of apples from an orchard you better have an idea of what you're going to make with all the apples. I have a favorite apple-pie smoothie that I make (it sounds fattening, but it's not..Greek yogurt, a couple of almonds, cinnamon and spinach along with some apples are a great start to the day) and I knew there would be PIE...and I decided to make some yummy applesauce too. The smell of the pies and the applesauce was AMAZING.

Personally I like apple pie with crumb topping..all that cinnamon crumb goodness is just begging for some vanilla ice cream if you ask me! I made two pies....we ate one right away!

Then, I made applesauce with Asian pears.  I had Little Man and his friend use the apple corer/ slicer to get all the apples ready. They had a blast obliterating those apples. One had a tiny worm in it and that completely had them cracking up. Then I had them simmer on the stove with plenty of was such a homey smell.

You've got to have a plan if you're going to bring home so many apples! Crafting some amazing treats is your best bet!
