Saturday Stirrings

Welcome to my favorite apple pie filling! I honestly have never liked restaurant or store-bought apple pie, because to me they can’t compete with this recipe. But before you get too excited, keep in mind that it all comes down to what you grew up with. For example, my husband doesn’t see anything special about this version. To him, apple pie is apple pie!

A little tip: skip the crust and ladle over vanilla ice cream. Or better yet, skip that step and eat it straight from the pan. That’s what I do!

Apple Pie Filling (Ice Cream Topping)
6-8 apples, peeled and sliced
4-5 slices of white bread, lightly toasted
1 egg
1 tbsp flour
5 tbsp cream or milk
½ - 1 cup sugar (if using sour apples, use 1 cup)
½ tsp cinnamon
real butter for frying
¼ cup apricot jam
2 tsp vanilla
dash of nutmeg

Cook apples on stove-top over medium-low until tender, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, whip the egg and add flour, cream, sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.

Fry slices of toast in butter on both sides. Cut them into cubes, and add them to the egg mixture, stirring until they are well coated.

Add jam, vanilla, and nutmeg to apples. Stir in bread and egg mixture. Heat until everything is cooked through.

Grab a spoon.

As if that isn't enough to get your sugar tooth rolling, Carol has a pumpkin roll recipe right here.

Hi Farrah,
This looks wonderful! I just noticed that your link at Saturday Stirrings today takes me to last week's recipe instead of this one. Just thought I'd let you know! :) Have a great weekend! ~Carol

That sounds really good. Of course, my son just won a store bought apple pie at a cake walk tonight, so we'll have to eat that first.
Love the new fall blog design. : )

Hello farrah,

This recipe sounds soooo good! I am going to have to try it. Thanks for sharing. Also I see that you homeschool. We also homeschooled our children. I am so glad we did this we would never trade those years for nothing. Our children our now 20 and 21. And we have a very good relationship with them. And they shock me sometimes with their wisdom at such a young age.. I am so thankful the Lord gave us the capabilities to be able to homeschool them. We had some tuff times and some good times. We had to make a lot of sacrifices but it was well worth it.. Blessings to you and your family.. I have already met your husband and he told me about your blog so I thought i would swing by and say Hi.. I am glad i did.
