Crunchy tidbits to nibble on are just so scrumptious when you're hungry. I thought I'd appease my crunch crave today with some tasty new recipes! Apple pie and mozzarella grilled cheese sandwiches, yum! It was the first time my kitchen and I worked up an apple pie; and to my pleasant surprise, it turned out quite succulent!
I used a Betty Crocker pie crust mix, and made 2 balls of dough using the instructions on the box. I then mixed in a bowl:
3 cups of thin sliced, peeled, and cored apples (VERY thinly sliced)
1/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
I rolled out the first ball of dough on a floury surface, and lined the bottom of the Pyrex with it. I then poured in the apple filling. Soon after, I rolled out the other dough ball and cut it into strips about the length of the square Pyrex. I designed them my favorite, good ol' fashioned apple pie weave arrangement (extremely fun to make put together)! I saved an extra long thin strip of dough, and twisted it around the perimeter of the pie.
I was super pleased with how it looked like before I baked it!
It flattened out a bit after the bake, but I added some caramel to give it a sweeter flavor, and an appealing design.
I also made some complementary grilled cheese sandwiches with mozzarella cheese. I usually use sharp cheddar cheese (which also tastes incredibly delectable!), but this was a nice flavor change. What makes these grilled snacks extra delish is the butter that I spread on the toast before toasting it- it makes it EXTRA crispy!
Oh, I sure had a blast munching on you!
