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.)

Why is it named ‘Pound’ Cake? Does it weigh a pound? Does it require a pound of ingredients to make it? Or is it because it make you gain a pound after eating it? Honestly, I have no idea why this cake is called ‘Pound’ cake. But, I do know how good it is to eat. Moist and yummy! (My husband likes it for breakfast.)
Sour Cream Pound Cake
1 box white cake mix
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup veg. oil
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Grease and flour tube cake pan or bundt pan. Mix cinnamon, brown sugar, and pecans. Set aside. Combine cake mix, sugar, oil, and sour cream. Add eggs one at a time – beating well after each one. Pour half the batter into pan and sprinkle half the cinnamon sugar on the cake mix. Add the remaining batter and sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon sugar on top. Bake for 1 hours @ 350 degrees. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove from pan. Pour glaze over cake.
Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 Tbsp. milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Whisk together until smooth.

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.
