Fun Friday: Apple Crisp Pizza from The Girl Who Ate Everything

Apple desserts are wonderful in the autumn months!

Apple desserts are wonderful in the autumn months! This was a new one for us!

I love the fall almost as much as the summer. Fall is probably my second most favorite season in New England. I love the crisp air and the gorgeous array of colors, and most of all I love all of the foods and the “pick your own” opportunities for apples and pumpkins.

Even if you can’t pick your own fruits, you can still bake lots of amazing things with the fall fruits. The other night I made a Swedish Apple Pie, which is an all-time favorite of mine, and recently I tried a new dessert, an Apple Crisp Pizza. This new recipe was from a blog called The Girl Who Ate Everything. It was shared on Facebook, which is how I saw it first. I later saw it on another blog as well, and they’d seen it on the same blog. We all must love the idea of apples and caramel and pizza!

You too can have a pizza for dessert!

The recipe is super-easy and didn’t take much time at all. I shaped my crust sort of like a pie with a fluted edge, hoping to keep all the fruit from falling out, which seemed to work well and looked very pretty. I also used my round Pampered Chef pizza stone, which worked very well too. I figured if I was making a pizza, I should use my pizza stone!

If you’d like to make this same dessert at your house this fall, visit The Girl Who Ate Everything over at her blog and you’ll find her recipe ready and waiting for you!

Happy Fall Y’All!

Swedish Apple Pie

5 Oct

When September rolls around, it’s time for apple pie!

It’s my second-favorite time of year, other than summer: it’s fall in New England! There’s nothing like it, a beautiful season for all of the senses.

It’s actually already October now, really more pumpkin time than apple time, but I realized that I had never posted this recipe and I made it at least a month ago! It’s an oldie but goodie from my mom’s kitchen. The recipe card she originally wrote the recipe on states that she got it from “Good Neighbors.”

I like this recipe because it’s different than your typical two crust apple pie and because it’s fast. When I don’t have a crust on hand, I almost always have flour, sugar, butter and eggs, which is just about all you need to make this pie.

Before you whip out your pumpkin ingredients this October, try this pie while it’s still apple-picking time!

Simple ingredients mean that I almost always have them on hand!


Fill a 9″ pie plate 2/3 full with peeled Cortland or Macintosh apple slices.

Sprinkle with a mixture of:

1 TBL Cinnamon
2 TBL Sugar

Next, in a medium bowl, mix together:

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) melted butter or margarine
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup flour

Spread over apple slices and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with whipped cream, ice cream….or both!
