We truly saw frost on the pumpkins, the roof-tops, and the windshields on cars when we woke this morning. Which made it a perfect afternoon to fill the kitchen with sweet cinnamon-y smells. How fortuitous (as my sister would say) to have discovered just yesterday Lorrie's long standing family recipe for Apple Pastry Squares. And how doubly fortuitous that I had a bowlful of apples just waiting for such an occasion.
With generous slices still warm from the oven paired with steaming cups of coffee, we happily settled beside the fireplace to watch a British mystery movie. How delightful. How delicious!
Lorrie mentioned that you could serve this with ice cream if you wanted, but she preferred it without. We agreed with her assessment. As much as I like a dollop of creamy vanilla ice cream atop almost anything, it was a truly delectable stand alone.
So thanks to Lorrie, what might have been just an ordinary chore-filled afternoon turned into a very pleasant occasion for all the residents of this household! Here's to you, Lorrie!
And here is wishing you all a beautiful day,
