After Apple picking days.....

We made apple cider...without a press.
My juicer worked pretty good for this. Now we have
apple juice to make apple butter with. 

Apple washer extraordinaire

and apple peeler extraordinaire. 

Apple butter maker extraordinaire. In addition to
Cinnamon, nutmeg, and Allspice I put a little Cardamom
in for a little taste flair. 

Only one didn't seal. It was yummy on toast this morning.

Also apple dumplin' maker extraordinaire.
Her first attempt at pie crust was a raging success! (with a
little direction from mom). She rolled out four squares
of dough. Small apples are peeled, cored and wrapped
 in pastry after adding sugar and spices and a pat of butter.
Then the four corners are gathered together on top.
These were so surprisingly good that we have been talking
about them all day! Tempted to make them again.  However,
we have something else waiting to be made tomorrow so
we are saving our calories for that. I hope they are as yummy!
OH! What are they? 

Raised Apple cider donuts. Yum!
