I was asked to make a fresh fruit item to introduce the new Fresh Fruit Bowl that is being sold exclusively at Bed Bath & Beyond. I asked my mom what she wanted to make with me and she said an apple pie. So I went out and bought the apples and pre made pie crusts.
I unrolled the pre made pie crusts and put them in the pie pans while my mom was peeling and cutting up the red and green apples. To keep the apples from turning brown we put them in cold water with lemon juice.
My mom mixed up the apple pie filling. Then my husband put the filling in the pie pans. I loved having my husband helping my mom, I was then free to take pictures. Plus I thought it was cute seeing my husband in the kitchen with my mom.
Apple Pie Filling:
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (4 medium red & 4 medium green)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Then my mom and husband drizzled Carmel and toffee sauce on the pies before the crumble topping was put on. This makes the pie taste oh so good.
My husband mixed the ingredients up for the crumble topping while my mom kept adding to it. My husband would think he was done mixing and my mom would add more butter it was so funny to watch.
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, diced
To finish the apple pies my husband drizzled Carmel sauce on the tops. Then we bake the pies for 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown at 400 degrees. Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Cool for at least 2 hours before serving.
The apple pie was so good and didn't last long in my house. My family loved it and I am glad we were able to make this with my mom. This was a great day that will forever be in my memories.
For the Fresh Fruit Bowl I thought to use it for what it was made for. My mom and I cut up cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew melon. To top off all the fresh cut up melon my husband got large grapes to mix in with it. The fresh fruit was a great snack on the warm days we have been having. Everyone loved being able to get a bowl of cold fruit when ever they wanted to snack. The bowl works great and kept the fruit fresh more than a week then it was gone.
