Applesauce Judy's Foodies Style!


There is nothing better than homemade applesauce! No bought jar can compare to the creaminess of make it yourself from scratch sauce. The best thing about applesauce is it is easy!

6 Pounds of Apples, this was about 20 medium apples.I used Macintosh, they have nice color & cook up creamy. Wash,quarter, & core the apples. Do not peel!
2/3 Cup Water 
2/3 Cup Sugar, more or less to taste!
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon, optional.
Place water in a large deep cooking pot & heat on medium heat. As you prepare your apples throw them into the pot on the stove to start their cooking process. Once all the apples are in the pot cover with a lid & cook over medium heat until they are completely soft!                                                             

This should take about 30 minutes. Stir often as the apples cook, to prevent them from sticking. Once apples are completely soft, turn off the heat. Now sieve apples through a mesh strainer or run them through a food mill. This will remove the skins & give you creamy applesauce. The reason I cook the apples with the skins on is it gives your applesauce a great color, just a tinge of pink! Once all the apples have been sieved place the sauce back into the pot over medium heat. Now add the sugar & cinnamon, I add about 1/2 cup of sugar stir & cook & then taste. If still to tart add a little more tasting until it is just right. Keep in mind the sauce will taste sweeter once chilled.. Cook & stir until sugar is melted. Remove sauce from stove & chill. This made about 7 cups of applesauce. I will keep some out for tomorrow, give some to my grandchildren & freeze the rest. 

This is my large mixing bowl full of finished Applesauce!

Caramel Apple Pie with a Sour Cream Crust & the crust is a recipe by Tracy Marx!

This is GREAT Apple Pie!

Nice light and flaky crust with that caramel apple filling!
This crust recipe was given to me by Tracy Marx & it is a keeper! Lots of butter & sour cream make it tender, crispy & easy to work with. It browns nicely too! Than you Tracy!
2 Cups Flour
2 Sticks Butter which is 16 Tablespoons, Cold & cut into small pieces
1 Teaspoon Salt
3 Teaspoons Sugar
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
Mix dry together, Cut butter in the mixture until you have fine crumbs. Now stir in the sour cream, use more if flour mixture is still to dry. I added about 2 heaping tablespoons. The weather will affect crusts so use more or less as need. Now roll at 1/2 on a very well floured surface. Line a 9 inch deep pie pan & let edges hang over until you are ready for your top crust. Now mix up the filling.
8 Medium Macintosh or Granny Smith Apples, I used Macintosh.
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
Dash of Salt
3 Heaping Tablespoons Flour
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Melted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Jar Smuckers Caramel Topping 12.25 oz. Jar reserve until you assemble the pie.

Put Lemon Juice in a deep bowl. Wash peel & core the apples. Slice into thin slices & put them into the lemon juice stirring the slices so all are covered with the lemon juice to prevent them from browning. Now put all the dry ingredients in the bowl & stir very well. Add the melted butter & vanilla & stir again. Put 1/2 of the apple mixture into your lined pie pan. Now pour 1/2 of the caramel sauce over the apple mixture, Add remain apple mixture & top with the other 1/2 of the caramel sauce. Roll out your top crust on that well floured surface. Cut air vents into the top. Cover your pie crimp & seal the edges & flute the edges. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45 minutes! Serve pie warm or at room temperature. YOU NOW HAVE GREAT PIE! Vanilla Ice Cream would be terrific with this!

Tandy Cake Version #2

We love Tandy Cake at our house & my son requested Tandy Cake for his birthday! I tried this recipe instead of my original Tandy Cake recipe! The secret in this recipe is butter, yogurt, & the dish below!

Hershey Kisses make this Tandy Cake extra special!
4 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 & 3/4 Cup Sugar
2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Yogurt

1 & 3/4 Cup Peanut Butter, I used Jif
60 Unwrapped Hershey Kisses
Mix sugar, oil, melted butter together with a mixer. Beat in eggs one at a time beating well after each egg.  Stir the yogurt, milk & vanilla together & then add this to the batter. Now stir all the dry together & beat that in to your batter. Spray  cookie sheet with edges, known as a Jelly Roll pan about 11x15 & 2 inches deep. Pour the batter into the pan & bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until lightly brown & springs back to the touch. Immediately spread the hot cake with the peanut butter & smooth out for an even finish. Let cake cool in the refrigerator or in the freezer, I put mine in the freezer for about 1/2 hour to harden the peanut butter. Once set melt the kisses in a double boiler until smooth & melted to a soft frosting consistency. Spread over the peanut butter & let the chocolate set up. Now you have a Kissed Tandy Cake! Beautiful & Delicious!

Butterscotch Angel Food Cake

This is a FUN & very EASY cake to make!

Delicious Plain!

Or if you are like me, you just have to have frosting!

1 Box Angel Food Cake Mix! Use one that has just one step!
1 Box 3.9 oz. Jello Instant Pudding Butterscotch Flavor! You may use any flavor you wish! Next time I am using the Coconut Cream Instant Pudding!
Stir the dry cake mix & the dry pudding together in a deep mixing bowl! Now add the water called for on the cake mix directions & beat as per directions. Bake as directed! Cool cake as directed! Frost with your favorite homemade or canned frosting or just leave plain! DELICIOUS! This has GREAT Butterscotch flavor & was just delightful!

1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar ( Dark works best)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Cook together in a heavy saucepan until all the sugar granules are MELTED! If not melted you will get sandy frosting! Just cook & stir until sugar melts, be careful to not burn the sugar. Once Sugar has melted let cool to warm! Now add 1/4 Cup milk or heavy cream, I use milk. Beat. Add about 2 Cups Powdered Sugar & beat! Add more sugar or more milk to get the consistency you desire! Frost your cooled cake! THIS IS SO GOOD!
