There’s something immensely satisfying with baking.
Seeing my beautiful baked goods cooling on their respective racks bring me immense satisfaction. 🙂
I made these scrumptious delights a few weeks ago for CCAC’s Women’s Dessert Night and for the boys at Horizon (since all the girls went to the women’s thing).
I wanted to create something “classy” for the ladies, so I chose to make Caramel Cranberry Almond Tart and Cinnamon Crumb Apple Pie. And I thought that the boys would appreciate something more home-y, like a Peach Blueberry Cobbler.
Tarts, cobblers and pies (oh my!) do require a bit more work than say muffins or cookies. But they look so pretty in the end! Don’t you agree? 🙂
The caramel gave me a really hard time. I actually had to throw away the first batch and start over. And I accidentally burnt some of the almond slivers so I had to pick through and throw those out. Sigh. But it came out beautifully!
I heard that the cobbler tasted wonderful! Being that I wasn’t there to witness the cobbler’s consumption.. I’ll just have to take what I heard as the truth. haha. But I have to say it came out really really pretty and I heard the topping was almost savory because of the cornmeal. Quite interesting.
Apple pie. Yum. Crumb topping? Yum yum. Pie are always so hard for me. But since this wasn’t a double crust pie.. it wasn’t as hard as usual. 🙂
Hurray! One post down and a few more to go! 🙂
Oh yes… MERRY CHRISTMAS! Enjoy family, friends, food, fellowship! But most of all, remember why we celebrate–JESUS! 🙂
