last weekend we went apple picking at a nearby orchard in the country. it was the perfect day- a clear blue sky and a gorgeous drive. i love living in the country especially in autumn.
i loved walking through the orchards. we were the only ones out there and it felt very calm and peaceful. so quiet. i can’t wait to do it again.
we picked jonagold and cameo apples. they were sooo crisp and sweet…yum. of course, i was itching to make homemade apple crisp and vanilla ice cream :)
my favorite standby recipe for apple crisp is from good ole betty crocker. it’s a recipe that my mom used for years and i’ll forever keep using. can’t beat it. the ice cream recipe is from the ben and jerry’s book. it’s so simple and really really creamy. another keeper.
next up on my baking list is an apple tart, muffins, strudel, and FOR SURE these donuts. they keep calling my name…
what’s your favorite thing to make with apples??
