apple picking

we finally made it to the orchard this year….bundled up, had a picnic, picked some apples, played hide and seek…so much fun!

came home and made an apple pie….the apples were so big it only took 4! the best ever….a piece of warm apple pie with my coffee in the morning.

Praline topping for apple pie

this topping is for a pie with a top crust….just pour it over a cool pie….to let the topping set and then warm when ready to serve.

1.  Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a small sauce pan. add 1/2 cup of light brown sugar (firmly packed), add 2 Tbsp. of whipping cream.

2.  Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

3.  Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, let stand for 5 minutes and drizzle over cool pie.

Love the pictures! I'm so sad that we didn't get to pick this year. :( I bet your pie was delicious!
