Tasty Tuesday


               I hope it's not too early for you, but the fall baking season is in the air and on my mind!  So look away if your still stuck on summer, if you can! I've been dreaming of making this recipe ever since I found it on Pinterest, don't they have the best recipes ever found online! My oven will be all fired up once it cools down again, I'll be making this old fashioned apple slab first thing!

Apple Slab



crust

  • 2 ½ cups King Arthur Perfect Pastry Blend
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk powder
  • ¼ cup vegetable shortening
  • 10 tablespoons very cold unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar, cider or white
  • 6 to 10 tablespoons ice water

filling

  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs, or other coarse dry bread crumbs; or 1 cup coarsely crushed cornflakes
  • 8 cups peeled, cored, and sliced Granny Smith or other tart, firm apples, about 6 large apples
  • 2/3 cup cinnamon sugar

glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup boiled cider*
  • small pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon milk or cream, optional, if necessary to thin the glaze
  • *Substitute 1/3 cup honey, if desired; or 1/4 cup thawed 
    
         I'm drooling, how about you? This recipe and more can be found at King Arthur Flour, which I can't find here but I've used their recipes before with store brand flour even and they've come out just fine. I'm ready for some fall baking, and can't forget the comfort foods for cooler weather either, no wonder it's my favorite time of the year! 

        I'm sorry my attempt at linking us up failed, the only one who did add their link didn't work, so I will have to practice on that, and I'm open to any and all tips! And don't forget, you still have time to join us in my annual fall apron swap coming up in Sept., just scroll down to that post to read all about it and to get signed up! Happy baking!
