I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Cranberry Apple Pie

Grab some cranberries at the grocery store now while they're still around and throw them in your freezer. Then in the spring when there isn't a cranberry in sight, and you have a craving for this pie, you'll be glad you squirreled some away!

3 cups sliced apples, about 4-5 medium apples
1 1/2 cups cranberries
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 - 1/2 tsp allspice
2 tbsps cornstarch
2 tsps instant vanilla pudding powder OR 2 tsps vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter
pie dough for 9" pie
egg white (optional)

Toss the apples, cranberries (fresh or frozen), sugar, cinnamon, allspice, cornstarch and vanilla together.
Roll out the pie dough larger than the cast iron pan and place it on the bottom of the pan with the extra hanging over.
Dump the filling in and distribute chunks of butter on top. Then draw the sides of the dough up over the filling, folding it as you move around the pie.
Brush the dough with egg white for a glossy, golden crust when baked.

Then bake in a 400°F oven for 35-40 minutes.
The smell is amazing!!

Cool 3-4 hours before slicing.

Always good with a scoop of ice cream!
