Recipe Redux: Naked Apple Pie Plus MVK’s *Like* of the Week

I’m in the Big Apple for a few days, so I thought I’d bring you a repeat apple recipe from my family’s recipe box, Naked Apple Pie! No fall is complete without making one of these pies. Try it out the next time you have to take a dish to a dinner party, it’s easy and delicious and I promise it will be a hit!

NAP USE2
Naked Apple Pie
I like to use Cortland apples for my pies; if you use a sweeter apple, you can, of course, cut down on the sugar.

½ c. white sugar
½ c. brown sugar
½ c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
6-7 peeled, pared, diced apples
½ c. nuts, optional (if using, I use walnuts)
Cinnamon and nutmeg

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Add the egg and vanilla and stir.
4. Add the apples and nuts, if using.
5. Top with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Bake in a greased pie pan or small cake pan for roughly 30 minutes, or until apples are soft.

DishwashingMVK’s *Like* of the Week: The Real Reason I Don’t Want Help With the Dishes
I know there has been lots of talk of introverts vs. extroverts in the past few years; Susan Cain’s book Quiet which examined this topic may have something to do with it. But when I read this article from www.thekitchn.com, I found myself nodding in agreement and realizing I could easily have written it! My kitchen seems to be a natural gathering place when we have guests over, but it’s the place I also like to retreat to for a few alone minutes. Do you like to do the same?
