I love the temperatures, the colours, the leaves falling, pumpkins, apples, & cinnamon.
What’s not to love?!?
Our fall came with handfuls of fresh apples from mom’s tree – perfect baking apples!
Clearly I put these apples to good use :)
Apple pie was first on the agenda.
Then, since we had more crust, and more apples – mini individual apple pies were made too :)
We shared the goodness with neighbours and family.
My mother-in-law told me the crust was as good as hers! Wow – that’s a compliment!
Unfortunately I didn’t snap any photos til after… but here are the leftovers!
Two slivers of pie, and one mini pie :)
Since we still had more apples to spare we also baked some quick apple cinnamon pancakes for breakfast! I just used my normal pancake recipe and threw in the apples and probably a tsp of cinnamon. Pancakes are the easiest breakfast because they are so quick to make, you can add virtually anything to liven them up, and they’re made with simple ingredients that I always have lying around my kitchen!
Even without whipped cream, these pancakes were delicious!
I’m sure there are more fall treats coming – I haven’t even gotten the pumpkin out yet!
