The Only Way To Live With A Craving … Is To Feed It!
Well, Mlle. Renee heard it raining in the middle of the night and she came into my bedroom and woke me up to ask if she could sleep with me. Since it was the middle of the night, I would have prefered her just jumping into bed. But she’s just too polite. And besides, I had to roll over to make room for her. So I said, “Come on, get in here.” Which she did, and she was back to sleep before I was. Thankfully, she doesn’t snore. I don’t know about me, but she’s never complained. Actually, I was glad she wanted to sleep in the bed, because my feet were starting to get cold and she warms them so well. Since it was very overcast, the house stayed rather gloomy and dark inside and we slept until 9:30. And then I woke up with a CRAVING for an old-fashioned warm apple crumb cake.
Realizing that could take a bit of time and effort, I seached my larder looking for short cuts. And I found this …It was the basics that I needed! I opened the can of Grands Flaky Layers and pressed the five biscuits flatcovering the bottom and sides of a Pyrex pie plate. Then I spread the can of apple pie filling on top. Finally, I placed whole wheat flour, brown sugar, chopped pecans and cinnamon in a small bowl, mixed well and added a tablespoon of butter to make a crumb topping which I spread over the apples. I popped it into a 350 degree oven and baked for 30-minutes.
