Apple pie

Here's how I spent my day today - peeling lots of apples. I made pies to give away today, but of course kept one for Bob! This is a good recipe and I thought I would share it.

Mom's Apple Pie
Combine: 1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Press out any lumps. Ad 6 large tart apples, peeled and sliced. Toss well.
Place unbaked pie crust in 9 inch pie plate. Fill pastry shell with apple mix.
Topping: 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
Stir together sugar and flour, then cut in better until mixture is crumbly. Spread over filling.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until browned.
*This is our families favorite apple pie and we rate it a 9.

Marshmallow Crescent Puffs

I just found this recipe. It was easy and a hit at our house, so I thought I would share it!

Marshmallow Crescent Puffs
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
16 large marshmallows
1/4 cup margarine, melted
2 pkgs Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each marshmallow in melted margarine and roll in cinnamon sugar. Wrap a crescent roll around each marshmallow. Seal completely!!! (this is important) Dip in melted margarine and again in cinnamon sugar. Place in greased muffin tin. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes until brown.
* You may skip the cinnamon sugar on the crescent roll and drizzle with powdered sugar glaze when done instead. I'm going to try that next time because I think it will taste like a cinnamon roll and be less messy!
**If you don't seal the crescents well, the marshmallow will melt and bubble all over your pan, making quite a mess! I learned the hard way!
*** We thought these were great and Bob rates them a 10!
