I have two family favorite recipes to share for my 3rd annual Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange! I hope you enjoy them!
Note: I'm also linking this post up in Linda's Fall Into Flavor recipe exchange!
The first one is a pie recipe. I love, love, love pie! I know pumpkin pie is a more traditional holiday treat, but I'm a sucker for apple pie. This recipe has been passed down in my family for many years and it's delicious!
Sour Cream Apple Pie
2 tablespoons flour
3/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients and beat until smooth. Line a 9" pie plate with pie crust (Pillsbury makes a good pre-made pie crust). Fill with freshly sliced apples (8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and sliced). Pour wet batter over the apples. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minute.
Remove from oven and add this topping.
Topping ingredients mixed together:
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Return to oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream on top! Yum!
My next recipe is actually a great gift idea. You mix all the dry ingredients in decorative containers, attach a gift card with instructions on how to serve and give it as a holiday gift. I've done this in the past and have gotten lots of excitement over it!
2 cups non-dairy coffee creamer
1 1/2 cups hot cocoa mix
1 1/2 cups instant coffee granules
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Combine all ingredients, mixing well. Store mixture in an airtight container. Yield: 6 1/2 cups mix.
Note for gift card that you'd attach to the container:
To make 1 cup, spoon 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon of coffee mix in a cup. Add 1 cup boiling water; stir until well blended. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and your favorite holiday cookies!
