Making Our Kitchen Smell Like Delicious Fall

I'm not sure what was the best part of our baked apples yesterday:

1.  The wonderful, cozy autumn smell in our house as we baked them
2.  The fun the girls had in making them
3.  The delicious, crispy crust and warm, sweet gooeyness inside

All in all a great (and easy) fall project!


cinnamon sugar
pie crust (I made my own because I'm cheap, but store-bought would be an easy alternative)
egg white (optional for making a shiny glaze on the outside)

What To Do:

1.  Peel and core some apples.
2.  Place each apple on a swatch of pie crust big enough to wrap the apple.
3.  Let each child stuff their apple with bits of cold butter and cinnamon sugar.
4.  Have them wrap their apples in the pie crust like a present.  Make sure that the apple is completely covered and there are no holes.
5.  Mix an egg white with a tablespoon of water and let your children brush on the glaze.
6.  Bake on a greased, tin foiled baking sheet at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

Yum!  Like tasty little apple pies!  My husband loved them too!
