Completion, leftovers, and a new family favourite

YUM - Emma making mud pies

Yes, its when your at the right place, at the right time, that memories can begin to be made.
And today was no exception.

After a hard days work finishing the glass house - yes that's right finally and in time for winter vegetables, our glass house is finished

Doesn't it look great!!

Anyway .. all I had planed for Dinner was leftovers
(a dinner I always look forward to as it never takes much preparation)
and I was looking forward to a easy/lazy evening when I came across a request for a Apple Crumble Pie recipe on a Forum I frequent.
Now those that know me would know that I love to bake - puddings being no exception ... so when the recipe was posted and I knew we had apples to be used, I felt compelled to try it! and boy oh boy how lucky we are .. this has now been entered into our family favourites and I can see it being made over and over to 'use up' those apples! .. and who wouldn't enjoy a serving when its complimented with cream and custard.

It even looks divine!

And I'm not sure if it breaches copyright ... but here's the recipe for you all to enjoy as well.

Apple Crumble Pie

Ingredients for the base
125g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour

For the filling
Stewed apples

For the topping
4 tablespoons brown sugar
8 tablespoons flour
50g butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves

Mix base ingredients together and press into a greased dish or individual cups. Press some of the mixture up the sides as well. Fill the dishes with stewed apple. To make the crumble, mix dry ingredients together and rub in butter. Spoon topping over stewed apple; bake at 180 centigrade for 30 minutes

Mmmm, I love apple pie and I love apple crumble - I'm sure that I'll love this, too! We just happen to have apples on the tree needing using as well...

The glass house looks really good! Happy gardening!
