You know how it goes. There’s always a guest or two who, for one reason or another, doesn’t like the dessert or they’re allergic to something in the dessert. There you are, the hostess without the most-est. And, for whatever reason, you ran out of time to make another dessert. After all, you were cooking turkey, dressing, your grandmother’s green bean casserole recipe, and the sweet potatoes. Oh yeah! Been there. Done that. Not to worry. Make this recipe. Quick. Easy. Warm. Ooey-gooey apple and cinnamon Da-Lish-C-ocity. Especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, which you probably had some anyway to go on top of the pecan pie.
4 apples, peel, core and slice
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter
Butter the baking dish and place apples in the dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Blen flour, sugar, butter and water together to form crumb mixture. Spread over apples and bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
(Mimi’s note at the bottom of the page in ‘the book’: Peaches may be substituted in this recipe for the apples. Use 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg when using peaches.)

Good Old-fashion Apple Pie! Nothing smells more wonderful while this baby bakes in the oven. Want to see them smile, make this pie. Want your grown kids or grand-kids to come over more often. Make this pie. No, seriously. Make this pie!
Mimi’s Apple Pie
6 cups sliced, tart apples (I use granny smith apples and one sweet apple. The sweet apple makes a lot of juice.)
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. butter
Place sliced apples in an unbaked pie shell. Mix dry ingredients and sprinkle over the apples. Dot with butter and cover with a top crust. Seal edges and cut slits in the top of crust. Brush crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.
Pure Yumminess! Y’all enjoy.

Thumbing through the spiral bound notebook of dessert recipes my sweet mother wrote in long-hand back in 1981, for me, the daughter who couldn’t cook, I found a recipe that is perfect for Thanksgiving dessert. Or, at least deserves to be on the dessert table as one of the desserts for Thanksgiving dinner. (I’d be a lost cooking cause if it weren’t for all the recipes Mom put on paper for me.) Maple Apple Dumplings. It is pretty and wonderful and tasty and yummy. You get the idea.
Maple Apple Dumplings
Pastry for 2 Crust Pie
6 medium cooking apples
6 Tablespoons light brown sugar
6 Tablespoons margarine or butter
1 cup maple flavored syrup
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup water
Make six pastry rounds. Core and peel apples. Place 1 Tablespoon brown sugar and 1 Tablespoon margarine in each apple and wrap in pastry. Place in baking dish and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Make syrup of sugar, water and maple syrup and boil gently for 5 minutes. Spoon 1 Tablespoon of syrup over each dumpling and bake in a 425 oven (preheated) for 10 minutes. Pour the rest of syrup mixture over dumplings and bake 30 minutes longer. Top with whipped cream to serve. Serves 6.
