This week we took a ride in the tractor down our hedgerow to pick apples from our one old apple tree. I picked dozens of really small apples and spent the day peeling apples and making some okay applesauce. Our son-in-law recently planted two apple trees and this year got quite a yield of apples. Off we went to pick more apples from his trees. I made more applesauce and mixed with the applesauce I made with the apples from our tree. And, I baked a five pound apple pie mixing the apples from the three trees. YUMMY!

I didn't think to take pictures from our tree. You can see the apples from our son-in-law's other tree in the video I posted on August 18th.
White Chocolate /Cranberry Shortbread..ohhhhh yes! - This ornament came from my dear friend pastry chef Daniel. Certainly reflects who I am over the holidays! That other lady, yes she is still busy baking well...
