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!

Strudel Style Apple Peach Pie

It looks like a strudel but I used pie dough instead of puff pastry for this delicious dessert.

4 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup canned sliced peaches, drained
3 tbsps sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1 lb pie dough
3 tbsps chopped pistachios
1 tbsp cream or milk
1 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup icing sugar (more or less to your preferred consistency)

Combine the apples, peaches, sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon and set aside. Roll out the dough to roughly 10 X 13" and lay it on your baking sheet. Spoon the fruit filling down the center and sprinkle 2 tbsps chopped pistachios. Using scissors make cuts down each of the two long sides at about 1 - 1 1/2" intervals. Wet the ends then tuck the top and bottom flaps up over the filling and start crossing the strips across the middle pinching slightly to seal.

Brush with a little cream or milk (you could also use an egg wash here if you like) then sprinkle the remaining chopped pistachios on top. 

Bake at 400°F for 35-40 minutes.

Once cool enough to handle use two large spatulas to lift onto a serving platter.

Combine the milk, vanilla and icing sugar and drizzle back and forth over the top.

Delicious on it's own but...

even better with a scope of butterscotch ripple ice cream!
