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.


  1. Okay, I am gonna make this pie. I like big pot holders too, I like them as hot pads for the counter tops and so many other uses, like tossing around the room like Sarah does.

    I hope this comment does not leave you any spammy spam

  2. That is so cute and the pie looks and sounds delicious.

  3. How appealing they are (no pun, really!), even the worm. The pie sounds great, sort of like pie with cake on top!

  4. Oh, that is sooooo cute!!! And the pie sounds and looks delicious!! xx

  5. I make something very similar called Eve's Pudding. Thank you for sharing the recipe, I will give that a try too. Your pot holder made me smile. They are a lovely bunch :)
