The Fun of Baking Together

I love baking and I have apparently passed it on to my oldest daughter.  She is always coming up with new recipes to try.  She recently found coffee cupcakes and pumpkin strussel coffee-cake.  Wow, talk about yummy!

Since the holidays are officially here now, we are in full baking mode.  She decided to make some sweet rolls with icing, they turned out okay, we will adjust the recipe next time.  She also made an apple pie with crumb topping, oh man, was that good!  I know I sound biased when I say this, but it was the best damn apple pie I have EVER had!  She made it purely from scratch, except for the crust, we went with pre-made this time.  We boiled the apples to a tender consistency, then prepared the filling flavor with cinnamon and spices.  We opted for the crumb topping, instead of the usual crust topping and I am so glad we did.  It really made the pie.  I took one bite and was in heaven.  The apples were perfect and filling almost had a caramel-cinnamon flavor.  I wish I had 5 more pies, so I could eat them all.

Lastly, we made a pumpkin pie, it was really nothing out of the ordinary, but there is something to be said about homemade pumpkin pie.  It just taste so much better than store-bought.  But then again, everything pretty much tastes better homemade.

The best part of this baking experience was that we did it together.  I truly love baking with my daughter(s), it makes for wonderful memories that I will always cherish and I hope she does too.

Until next time…bake something, it’s good for the soul and yummy for the tummy.
