I Promise There Are No Worms Allowed In My Apples

I'm posting over on the Therm O Web blog today where I'm sharing my
No Worms Allowed oversized pot holder. I promise there are no worms!

I love BIG potholders to hold those roasts, casseroles, cakes, or pies after they come out of the 
oven. This oversized potholder measures 14” x 14” which was perfect for holding my apple pie. 
 Therm O Web EZ Print Lite Sheets  quickly print out my applique patterns…no tracing!

I’m not good at making pie crusts, so years ago when my mother-in-law shared her
 Swedish Apple Pie recipe with me I jumped for joy. It doesn’t involve a rolled crust…yay!
 The pie is topped with a dough like crust that gets spread across the chopped apples. 
It’s sugary delicious and even better with a little ice cream or whipped cream on top! 
(Yes, I know it is full of sugar and butter...not a dessert to eat everyday.)


4 (or more) apples, peeled & diced

Press down in bottom of pie plate.

1 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. Cinnamon

Mix together and sprinkle over the apples.

1 1/2 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Mix all ingredients together.  Spread mixture over the apples.  (It will be thick.)

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. 

(This can be prepared in a 9 x 13 pan--just adjust the ingredient amounts.)

You can find the No Worms Allowed pot holder at my Craftsy store HERE.

Apples, Apples, Apples For ThermOWeb's BOM

I'm more of a cookie and donut kind of gal, but a really sweet apple is a pretty
good substitute. My stack of apples for ThermOWeb's BOM includes my favorite
red and yellow apples, but that green one is a bit too tart for me.

Posted on the ThermOWeb blog today

Creating and sewing this block of apples for the Therm O Web block of the month was easy. 
Therm O Web EZ Print Lite Sheets make appliqueing so easy. All it takes is an inkjet printer
 and your designs are ready for to be ironed on the fabric. No tracing!

What you’ll need:
Oliso Purple Iron (purple makes everything more fun!)

5-6 fabrics for apples

I used Northcott's Canvas fabrics by Deborah Edwards to make the apples.

You can find the pattern for APPLES in my Craftsy store HERE.

Earlier in the month I made a quilt for a Riley Blake Designs blog tour.
I loved the fabric so much, I used the leftover fabric to make a table runner.

The fabric, Christmas Delivery, is cute and beautiful!
