and I just happen to have one that I would like to share with you all.
It is simple, sweet and perfect with a cup of coffee on a
blustery, Autumn day.
So, a few weekends ago as the north wind blew and the rain came
down I made a trip to our local market to gather some beautiful
granny smith apples.
Granny smith apples are such a firm, dense and tart apple and as you
know perfect for baking. Their green skin is vibrant and attractive.
I could not resist taking a few photos of them.
It almost seemed a shame to peel them, such a gorgeous green.
And here they are all warm and bubbly with just a little powdered
sugar glaze on them and a couple of little leaves made out of leftover
pie crust. Just heavenly on this rainy and windy day.
