There is definitely a chill in the air. Since Pa Lloyd’s hip replacement surgery I have been taking Maggie out for her early morning constitutional which is shortly after 6:30. Its cool out there that time of the morning! Luckily its still kind of dark and since Maggie is afraid of the dark it doesn’t take her long to do her business! Here’s hoping that Pa is back to his usual duties by the time it snows! It’s a little less hectic at our home. Baby Nora Grace is now home, Pa is more mobile and my mother’s memorial service was Saturday. Even Maggie’s flea infestation has subsided. Now its to get ready for Halloween. That’s an event on Woodland Avenue, luckily once again our daughter Mary, Scott and our Grandson Nik are coming to our rescue for the evening!
I was looking for an easy recipe for a dessert and came across this gem in an old cookbook. We liked it, I hope you do too.
Norwegian Nut Apple Pie:
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 beaten egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cups chopped peeled apples
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Combine sugar, flour and baking powder, whisk until well mixed. Mix in egg and vanilla, then stir in apples and walnuts. ( batter is stiff) Grease a 8 or 9 inch pie plate and spoon mixture into and spread evenly. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Cut in wedges and serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. Good warm or cold.
Have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
