Apple Crunch Pie & Zucchini Bread

Okay, Tara asks for the apple pie recipe at least a couple of times a year, and the first request has come, so I am going to share it here so she can have access at anytime ;)  It is from a church recipe book that my friend Betsey Hyde gave to me, I think the recipe is actually from her mother-in-law.

Apple Crunch Pie
mix in plastic bag:
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Shake 4 cups of prepared apple slices in flour mixture.  Put apple mixture in unbaked pie shell and sprinkle 2 tablespoons lemon juice over apples.
Crunch topping:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
Melt butter first and crumble over top of apples.  Bake at 325 -250 for 1 hour.

** I do not add the lemon juice, but do add an extra tsp of cinnamon to the crunch topping (I will usually make two pies at once and triple the topping, so that each pie gets 1 1/2 recipes of topping.

Zucchini Bread   (recipe from Kirsten Likes)
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
1 tbl vanilla
3 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbl cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups grated zucchini
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Mix oil, sugar & vanilla together.  Blend dry ingredients together.  Add to sugar mixture, add zucchini, milk & nuts.  Bake in 2 greased and floured loaf pans or 5 greased & floured mini loaf pans.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour, remove from oven, let cool 10 minutes and then remove from pans.

Well, I am off to read the second novel in the Hunger Games series.  Hope you enjoy the recipes!!
