My mom and a couple of her friends went to Michigan last weekend, and I told her that if she brought home some tasty apples (I love fresh picked Michigan apples) we could get together for dinner and I'd make an apple pie.
I've known my mother for almost 25 years, and I should have known better. I don't know why I'm surprised... She brought home enough apples for a year's worth of pies!
I'm going to her house tomorrow for apple day, and I'm looking for some interesting apple ideas. I'm definitely doing a pie or two, we've already done pancakes with apple topping, and my pie recipe makes good turnovers, too. Anyone have any other good apple ideas? We've got Fuji's, Mackintoshes, and another one that I don't know the name of, but is supposedly great for cooking. They're fresher than anything I'd ever find in a Chicago supermarket, so I'm hoping for dishes that will bring out the tasty appley flavor.
