Well, it’s been a nice, yet busy spring break here. We’ve done a lot around the property to get ready for spring and summer. We’ve made the fence stronger using electric, we finished another round of homemade maple syrup, and the best of all has been working on the cabin. It’s getting there, slowly but surely. We have the woodstove in and working, stone set around it, pallets getting cut down and put up on the walls for a nice rustic look, a queen size rustic wood bed frame made for us and soon to be ready for pick up. There’s still a ton to do, but it seems more like a reality that it will get done. I was worried a few months ago. I just have to remind myself to be patient and do a little at a time. The dream will come true.
Now onto some sweet baking. I made this awesome cinnamon roll apple pie with a crumb topping. It’s real easy, yet so delicious and sweet.
Cinnamon roll apple pie
2 cans cinnamon rolls. Take apart and put on bottom of pie plate. Smush them down and use as your crust. Don’t leave any gaps.
Peel and cut up about 4-6 apples in a bowl (I use granny smith). Mix with sugar and cinnamon. Add on top of cinnamon roll pie crust. It may be overflowing, but that’s ok.
6-8 Tbsp. cold butter -cut into small cubes
1/2 c flour
1/4 c brown sugar(more if needed)
Mix together with a fork, pastry cutter, or just your hands. That’s what I use. 😁
Place on top of pie. Bake on 350 for about an hour. Just keep an eye on it after 40 minutes have gone by.
Take out of oven and let cool a bit.
Use icing provided with cinnamon rolls and drizzle on top of pie.
