Mock Apple Fried Dough Made With Pillsbury Grands

These are so simple it is disgusting, but so amazingly delicious it is fattening...HEHEHEHE!

Mock Apple Fried Dough

Ingredients:

10 medium Macintosh apples pealed and sliced
2 cans (16 bisquits total) Pillsbury Grands Bisquits
1 cup brown sugar
2 heaping tbsps flour
1 tsp. ground allspice

Directions:

Peal and core the apples, then slice into pieces

Use a chopper and chop until a medium dice


Roll out each bisquit into a 6 inch circle (shown here by my sous chef Sam)


Mix all the ingredients together in a medium size bowl


Preheat the oven to 375 F, and place each circle on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet


Place a generous amount of mixture in the center of the circle, and spread out till almost to the edge


Hayden enjoyed teething on one of the extra apples


Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until edges are golden brown, allow to cool for 10 minutes, and then dust with confectioners sugar if you desire...I DESIRE! I also would suggest serving with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Some new patterns in the shop!

So, having Hayden and him being so freaking adorable...If I do say so myself...has refired my design fire and I am crocheting like a crazy woman.  Here are the three newest patterns I have just stocked our shop with:


The Turtle Shell Hat (3-6 MOS)



The Blue V Neck Textured Pullover Vest (6-9 MOS)




And last but not least, the Fall Crochet Sweater Vest Pattern for 3-6 Month Old




The big boys have been thankful I am no longer having them model things as poor Hayden has been subjected to, and they are pictured here having a BLAST on Poppy's newest toy!
