Cleaning Out the Fridge from Thanksgiving

So, have you cleaned out the refrigerator from Thanksgiving? I did and, wow, it made me feel so much better. If you’re like me, you may have found some leftover apples from fall that kept well. I wanted to use them up so I went hunting for a quick and easy recipe. I found a winner. Just made it tonight. Best part is I found it in a church cookbook that my mom gave me. The person who submitted it is Betty Layton, a long time friend of my mom’s and an avid church goer. Her family, the Cannon’s, sold their farm to my mom and Farmer Dan in 1975. We loved playing in the round roof barn that her dad built. I even remember their family name etched into the wood going up the stairs and the year it was built – 1926. Enjoy!!!
