Apple Pie Enchiladas

I got this recipe from facebook

1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Spoon about one heaping quarter cup of pie filling evenly down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle with cinnamon (I have my cinnamon in a shaker bottle, so I just sprinkle some on each as I am rolling them) roll up, tucking in edges; and place seam side down in prepared dish.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes, remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Pour sauce over enchiladas and let stand 45 minutes ..
Don’t rush the 45 minute resting time for the sauce on the enchiladas before baking, this step helps to magically transforms the flour tortillas into a faux pasty dough

Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, or until golden

Snow

100_5075

We are getting snow today.  It started out as rain, changed to sleet and now it is all snow.  Predictions are 4-6 in.  We’ll see.  Anyway, it looks pretty coming down. 

Tonights menu is meatloaf, cheesy pototoes, home canned green beans and fresh rolls.  The recipe I use for the meatloaf is:

2 lb hamburger, 2 tbsp bbq sauce, 1 cup milk, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 sleeve crackers crushed, 1 egg, 1/2 cup chopped onion, salt and pepper to taste.  Bake for 1 hr 15 min at 400 degrees.  Topping for meatloaf- l cup ketchup, 1/2 cup brown sugar. 

Cheesy Potatoes:

In a casserole dish, layer sliced potatoes, chopped onions, salt, pepper, sprinkle on 1 tbsp flour, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded mozzarella–repeat layers pour 1 cup milk over the entire dish and bake at 400 degrees for 45 min or until pototoes are done.

It certainly will smell good in your home while these are baking.  Our rolls are baking as I type.  I think I am getting hungry.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Apple Butter

I started first with fresh picked apples.  I sliced them, and put them into the microwave for about 10 min. or until tender.

Next, I put the apples through my Roma sauce maker.  A food mill will work too.  Then I put the applesauce into a pan and put them in the oven.  Sorry I forgot to get a picture of this step.  You can put them on the stove to cook or cook them overnight in a crockpot.  I use the oven method, but am thinking of trying the crockpot.  Here is my recipe that I use.  I got it from the Mennonite cookbook.

Apple Butter

1 gal. applesauce, 6 3/4 cup brown sugar (this can be adjusted to taste), 1 cup apple cider or vinegar, 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. allspice, 1/4 tsp. ground cloves.  Mix ingredients together.   If using oven, put into an oven safe pot, bake at 350 degrees for 3 hrs.  stirring frequently.  I stir mine about every 30 min.  If using top of stove, cook on low for 1 1/2 hrs.  stirring much more frequently as the stove top method is more likely to stick to the kettle.  If using the crockpot method, put in the crockpot and cook overnight.  Stirring only occasionally.

The result.  Beautiful applebutter.  I like this recipe much better than any other I have tried.  I have used a recipe that called for cinnamon red hots.  It makes the applebutter a red color.  We prefer the dark brown color.   This recipe is very friendly.  You can purchase store bought applesauce, use the crockpot method and it requires very little effort to have delicious applebutter.  You also can freeze this instead of canning it. 

Temperature here this morning is rather chilly.  Mid 40’s with clouds and rain.  No fog yet.  I guess I’ll be drying clothes inside today.  Take care and God bless.

Roses-Getting Ready

100_3572

My rose bush is full of these little buds.  I can’t wait to see them in bloom!  Of course, I will take a picture so you all can see them too.  Today we begin our new study today on I Corinthians.  Pray for us, as the ladies seem to think this will be a hard study.  To me, hard means digging deeper.  Hopefully, digging deeper means understanding deeper.  We’ll see.  Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Sunshine, not too warm, just right.  I washed clothes again and hung them out on the line to dry.  I thought I should take advantage of the sunshine.  They are calling for rain this evening through Monday.  Every year, our church does a youth Trout Fest day.  It is scheduled for tomorrow.  The pond is already stocked and ready to go.  It is a big day. The kids fish from 9:30 to 12:00.  Then we have a picnic lunch.  Hotdogs with all the fixin’s.  Lots of desserts.  The kids and the adults have a LOT of fun.  Hopefully, it will not get rained out.  We went over to a friend’s house last night.  I made homemade cinnamon rolls and took them to share.  Good coffee, good food, good fellowship.  Life is good and God is great!  I took Jessica’s advice and made the rolls a little different this time.  I put chopped pecans in the middle along with the brown sugar and cinnamon.  Then for the icing I made a quick caramel frosting from my Mennonite cookbook.  The recipe is:

1/2 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar.  Melt together on low heat and boil 2 min. stirring constantly.  Add 1/4 cup milk and heat just until boiling again.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.  Stir in 2 cups sifted powdered sugar.

This was very good on the cinnamon rolls.  I know it would be excellent on cakes as well.  Time for my day to get busy.  Take care and God bless.

Honey Bun Cake Recipe

This is my honey bun cake recipe.  It is really easy but oh so delicious.   1 box yellow cake mix, 4 eggs, 3/4 cup oil, 8 oz.sour cream (or sour cream substitute).  Mix ingredients, spread 1/2 mixture in a greased 9X13 cake pan.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the following mixture on top–1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon.  Spread remainder of cake batter on top sprinkle remaining brown sugar mixture on top of this.  Swirl batter with a butter knife.  Bake at 350 degrees 35 minutes or until done.  For the glaze I use 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla and 5-6 tbsp evaporated milk.    Drizzle glaze on while cake is still warm and enjoy.  I would like to take a minute to thank my friend Marie for this recipe.  She is one of the best cooks I have ever known.  Unfortunately, Alzheimers has robbed her memory of many great recipes but every time I make this cake I think of her.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.  God Bless.
