Something sweet...

I made a strawberry/apple pie this week.
Picture your regular apple pie recipe.
And add strawberries on top.

It was a fantastic combination flavors.

For a "little extra" sweetness,
I sprinkled cinnamon sugar
on the pie crust before baking.


My mother and grandmother used to bake the extra pie crust strips and dust them with cinnamon sugar. It was a special treat.

In case you're wondering, I found these
"free" flavored sugar labels here.




Have a sweet weekend!

Looks absolutely delicious, I haven't had a homebaked pie in ages. Cinnamon sugar dusted pie crust strips sound wonderful too. Have a happy weekend!

That looks delicious :) My mouth is actually watering for a slice as I type. I've never been a huge fan of apple pie, but the strawberries sound like a killer addition. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and are still on the happy road to recovery!

The pie looks yummy. Your crust is so pretty(I've never made a decent crust) Love your cookie cutters in the big jar. Have a nice weekend!

The pie crust cookies were always a favorite heavily sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. I would never think to add strawberries to apples but it looks lovely. You can't sit still can you? It sounds very familiar...smiles...Renee

A strawberry and apple pie sounds delicious! My mom and grandma used to make those strips from extra pie crust and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, too!

It's strawberry season now, and I am enjoying every minute of it! They are my favorite fruit! Have you tried sliced strawberries on a green salad with balsamic dressing? Delicious!

Nellie said...

Oh, yum! What a lovely pie!
I've been away where Internet service was very poor, so I've fallen far behind in my blogging. Hopefully your recovery is progressing as it should. xoxo

Oh, I love cinnamon sugar. On toast!!! I never thought to put it on a pie, but that makes so much sense.
