Apple Pie Rolls

Posted on

The other day my grandchildren were visiting overnight and I planned to take them to the local gym for open swim time after our evening dinner.  I don’t know about your experience, but I know from when my kids were little that swimming makes em’ hungry!  I really hand’t been to the grocery store in a while, I mean it’s just honey and I here and we really don’t need shop often or have much on hand at one time.  With all that said I did find that I had very little to choose from and I wanted something to be ready to eat as soon as we got home so the kiddos could get off to bed quickly.  I also wanted healthy i.e. not a lot of sugar.  I found a couple of apples and some unopened eggroll wrappers and not much else.  So why not try to make something apple pie-ish?

I chopped two apples into small pieces, sprinkled with cinnamon (we like a good amount) and one packet of stevia and approximately one teaspoon of flour and mixed it all together in a medium bowl.

 

Next, I placed approximately 2 to 3 tablespoons of the apple mixture in the center of each eggroll wrapper:

Moisten the edges with a little water then roll up once from the bottom corner tucking the apple mixture in firmly.  Next, fold in each side over the just covered apple mixture and bottom corner wrapper…now just roll it over to the top corner.  Before placing in the over I sprayed each roll with cooking spray then sprinkled with a pinch of sugar  .I baked mine on a parchment lined baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned.

 

Don’t they look good?

The tasted great! My grandchildren loved them and each had two. My adult kids loved them too.  The possibilities are endless and I cannot wait to make them again!

Here’s Cheer’s to Apple Pie!  I might need to get to that grocery store though, the cupboards are almost bare now……

Let’s Eat Cake(pops)

Posted on

I was recently asked to make some cakepops for Yarnia, an awesome local yarn shop participating in the RHODY Yarn Crawl.  What would be better than something sheepish to “shear”?  Yes, I say this a bit sheepishly… But seriously, I found Sheep Cakepops from Bakerella and fell in love with them!   Oh, you know I had to try them and well……

I added some other Sheep Shapes and Yarn CakePops and TahDah… they came out pretty good… not Bakerella good, but Deedee GreenStreet good.

 

The sheep in the top of the photo above is dipped in coconut. The sheep to the left  is my interpretation of the ones I saw made by Bakerella.  The sheep on the bottom right has pieces of mini marshmallows under the chocolate.

The owner of Yarnia was very happy with them and hopefully there won’t be many of the 60 CakePops left after the Yarn Crawl.  Hmmm, a Yarn Crawl, perhaps a great way to unwind after a long day… hehehe…Now off to clean my baking mess in the kitchen..ho hum where is the kitchen fairy when you need her?

Oh and if you are ever in the area of Woonsocket, RI please do visit this wonderful Yarn Shop.  Yarnia offers all sorts of yarns, weaving looms, spinning supplies and accessories!  I have posted a tidbit of what they offer in the photo below….
