This is a quick and easy recipe for a cross between a tart and a pie. You have all the flavors of an apple pie with the crisp sweet addition of pears. And to save on the pie crusts, use a crumble topping instead.

Zucchini Apple Muffins

Our basket site is full of awesome volunteers. I don’t think that we can say that enough! Every once in a while someone shows up with goodies. This recipe is from one of our volunteers, Katy.

Caramel Apple Pie

I must add a disclaimer….. I am not known as the “pie maker” in our family. For that title, you will need to go to my aunt Ellen or my cousin Becky. They have been baking pies that have been pleasing our family for years! From them, I did learn […]
