Bread Pudding Apple Pie
3 eggs 3 cups bread cubes
1 cup applesauce 2 apples - peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar 2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup rolled oats 1 (9") unbaked pie crust
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350*. In a medium mixing bowl stir together eggs, applesauce, yogurt, white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Stir in bread and apples. Pour into pie crust. In another bowl stir 1/4 cup brown sugar and flour. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle on top of pie filling. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until top is golden and fruit is tender.
*I baked the pie closer to 1 1/2 hours and once the edges of the crust turned to a golden brown I put aluminum foil around the edges so it would not burn.
10-12 cups thinly sliced apples 1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup white sugar 1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour 1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup water 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350*. Place the sliced apples in a 9x13" pan. Mix the white sugar, 1 Tbsp. flour, and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. Pour water evenly over all. Combine the oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture. Bake for about 45 minutes.
*I think next time I might make some more of the topping mixture. I think this is the best apple crisp recipe I have found.
All Day Apple Butter
5 1/2 pound apples - peeled, cored and finely chopped
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
2-4 cups white sugar
Place the apples in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Pour the mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well. Cover and cook on high 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook 9-11 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown. Uncover and continue cooking on low 1 hour. Stir with a whisk, or mix in a blender if desired, to increase smoothness. This recipe can be canned, refrigerated, or frozen.
*Start out with 2 cups sugar and taste to see if sweet enough. If not, add more sugar.
