Cindy and Mike have a very prolific apple tree this year and brought me a huge bag of Granny Smith apples. I decided today that I couldn't let them go to waste either. I hate to see good fruit waste. So today after lunch, I made Apple Crisp, Fresh Apple Muffins and Apple Enchiladas. I don't need any of these desserts in my house. I'm already fat as a toad. But it is soooo good. I have been busy, busy. I love to cook, it is so much fun to try out all new recipes.
For the Apple Crisp, I pulled information from several places to end up with this recipe. I first looked to Pioneer Woman for inspiration. She had a recipe for Pear Crisp and so I used it with a few modifications. I combined it with a recipe from another book. I think that it turned out good. I just hope that I can duplicate it some time again.
The Apple Muffins are a favorite of mine from childhood. My mom used to make these a lot when I was growing up. The problem is they don't look real appetizing. They are so moist and get better after the first day. (If they last that long.) I am going to share just a peek. I am embarrassed because they look terrible. You just have to taste them once to believe me!
The last picture is of the Apple Enchiladas. I have only ate them one other time. But with the last bit of apples I didn't know what to make. I talked to my sister this afternoon and she recommended that I find a recipe and try these. They are really good. Why no one ever makes them is a puzzle to me. I think that today's cooking projects turned out to be a success. According to my family's praise it was a success!
Next time, I think I should probably freeze the fruit and save it for another time. I am exhausted and a little tired of apples.
