The weather’s still warm in my neck of the woods, but that hasn’t stopped me from getting into the Autumn spirit! One thing I do at this time each year is make a trip to the apple orchard. Last Saturday, I packed my kids up and headed up to Hillcrest Orchards in Ellijay, GA. If any of y’all are in the area, I highly recommend stopping by! Their website is www.hillcrestorchards.net.
We had a great time, and came home with a bushel and a peck- literally… Don’t ask me how a 5 year old and 3 year old managed to get that many, but they did, and they had fun doing it!
Now, I have to figure out what to do with all these! There is a recipe that’s been on my list to try for a while, and now seemed like the perfect time to try it: Bacon Apple Pie- need I say more? I found this recipe at www.justapinch.com and it looked pretty simple. I’m always looking for recipes without a lot of prep time! I assembled my ingredients and got to peeling! Whoops! I forgot to put the flour in the picture!
The most time consuming part of this was peeling all the apples. It took me about 10 minutes. FYI- You don’t HAVE to peel them for this recipe, but I have picky eaters around these parts! I was so excited to get this treat in the oven and forgot to take a “before baking” picture- can you really blame me? Here I was staring at a little slice of heaven and a 45 minute wait time!
Boy howdy, it was worth the wait! I barely snapped a picture before digging in to this yummy goodness… I also may or may not have eaten a slice for breakfast this morning- What? There’s bacon in there!
I will definitely be adding this to my dessert rotation- my kids loved it, and I did too! Of course, my family enjoys anything I make using Pederson’s products. Give this recipe a try, and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear what your favorite bacon recipes are for Fall- Stay tuned- I may just try yours next!
