Dessa's Homespun Scents Apples & Cinnamon = perfection.
My Candles From the Keeping Room Apple Jack & Peel wax apple. Don't ask me to melt it yet. I am still petting it.
As a creature of habit there are a few things that conspire after the fall decorations began to make an appearance in the Johnson household. One of those things is baking a Fresh Apple Cake, which I did last weekend, and the other consists of adorning my person with all things fall scented.
But first! Pinterest.
I decided to search out a new apple recipe on that famous time-suck we all know and love. Mini apple pie cookies. I can never resist mini things. I used this recipe here. Watch out for annoying ads and pop-ups. Sorry.
As you can see in the photo above, I began to struggle and was about to chalk this up to a Pinterest fail. But they turned out all right in the end.
I cheated and used pre-made pie crusts. I think the 3 tablespoons of corn starch were way too many. I honestly think 1 teaspoon would have been enough. I also cut up the apple chunks smaller than the recipe called for before cooking them. The idea of chopping them after they were cooked (and hot and sticky) did not appeal to me. I lacked a circle cookie cutter (need a train, dog bone, dino or random shape... got that covered) so I implemented my critical thinking skills and came up with a mason jar lid. Worked in a pinch. But I will put a circle cookie cutter on my wish-list now.
I ate two. Adam ate three. I thought "ok" and he thought "yum." I took the rest to my Pop-Pop who loves apple pie.
This bad boy is one of the few rich gourmand scents that I love. A heavy caramel and toffee and candy apple cornucopia: Corvin's Apple Fest from Solstice Scents. A sweet IG friend gifted me this and I have been so thankful for it.
What kinda apples are rolling around in your corner of the world? Anything appley you want to share for us to enjoy? Please do! As long as it doesn't deal with crunching an apple in my ear. Then I'm out.
