Improvising With Apples

My backyard gifted me just enough apples in the latest harvest for roughly two pies worth. I needed a mom break so I dropped my kiddos with the grandparents and went to MY Grandma’s house and made pie while we chatted. (I wore a mask the whole time even though we are both vaccinated, better safe than sorry!)

I hit a roadblock. We were having so much fun chatting that I didn’t realize we had run out of flour after making two bottom crusts. So I had two half constructed pies that were missing tops! And where my GG lives, the nearest store is 30 minutes away in a different county. So we got creative and made do. We combined quick cooking oats, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon to make a crumble topping.

All reports were that it worked out well, but the pie was a little dry as the oats sucked up all the excess liquid from the cooked apples. But all in all still an edible dessert. But the best part was spending a few hours alone with my GG. I wish I could do it more often so I’ll cherish the time I do get.

Happy Baking!!

  1. How fabulous – and healthy too with oat topping. I just made an apple and cinnamon cake with apples from my garden – it’s the time of year! – straight out of the oven and it wasn’t long before we all had some!
