    Default Rec and pics - Impossibly Easy French Apple Pie

    Wanting to use up some Bisquick before it goes, I made an apple
    pie-cake. I'm not sure what makes it "French". The recipe came from here:
    http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/...2-0054e53d7f2f


    Hot out of the oven
    http://i40.tinypic.com/hta0j8.jpg

    Close up
    http://i42.tinypic.com/nrpzc.jpg

    I haven't tried it yet as it's just too hot. I have quite a few more
    apples to find things to make, but I'm a sucker for apples dipped in
    peanut butter, so that will be a snack tomorrow.

    Oh yum! I just cut a slice and it is so good I can't believe it's
    bisquick. Not too sweet. This recipe is a keeper.

    Mmmmmmmmm....that sure DID look so good in the pictures too..did the
    apples cook up nice and soft too? I don't care for apple pie where the
    apples are still "crunchy", like the ones at Costco, etc., as seem
    undercooked. Have it topped with vanilla ice cream? I think I would
    have, while still slightly warm. Sure wish I lived next door to you! :-)

    I really like the Impossible Pumpkin Pie using Bisquick, and have made
    some other good things over the years using Bisquick also.

    I don't know why it was called impossibly easy since you have to prepare
    the apples and topping. It looks good though. I was making some stuff
    with Bisquick too. I've completely forgotten what that was though.

    I made a ridiculously easy cornbread today. My prep was less than 2
    minutes. The next time I make it, I'm gonna try for 90 secs. All I did
    was add some oil to a pan, dump Marie Calendar cornbread mix in bowl,
    add water and stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Dump in pan and bake
    at 375 until done.

    I got the mix at Costco. This pretty much means that I can have
    cornbread on merely a whim. Whims are good.

    Great! Think I'll buy some of that GF Bisquick and give it a try next
    time my family comes over.

    Just a play on words - Impossible Pie (a Bisquick recipe thing) plus
    the expression "impossibly good" etc. It's certainly easier than
    making a conventional pie with a rolled crust.

    That looks good. I usually have all those ingredients on hand, so
    that is a nice recipe to keep in mind. It looks like it would be
    pretty forgiving if another fruit was substituted, too.

    I am familiar with the impossible series of Bisquick recipes. I made the
    impossible quiche decades ago. It was OK but a possible quiche is pretty
    easy too. In fact, I think I'll have that for dinner tonight. I'll stick
    a pecan pie in the oven while I'm at it. I'll leave out the bacon and
    stick it in the quiche instead. I know the rest of the family will
    appreciate that. (-:

    Timely but one can also make an individual apple "en croute" peeled and
    cored & dusted with a bit of good brown sugar and a bit of butter &
    cinnamon stick in the centre and then wrapped up in a good short paste
    and properly ventilated, baked..

    Serve with pre made chocolate leaves and twigs if you must or make a
    small hole in the top of the paste to pour a bit of apple brandy and/or
    chocolate sauce into just before serving. Though one can get very
    imaginative about the filing added after baking, a good soft cheese,
    various jams or other cooked fruits & etc. Serve hot, as individual
    servings, in a shallow bowl with knife and fork and offer fresh thick
    cream with

    Just the ticket for Bill's lunch dessert for the week - quick and
    easy, as I'm making a batch of almond butter cookies and a batch of
    madelines, as well. Tomorrow's dinner has been merrily cooking in the
    crock pot all day: Bulgarian Beef Stew. First time I've tried it. May
    cut back on the cayenne next time. Not a pepper fan, but Bill likes
    it. And what's "Bulgarian" about it, I don't know, as one of the
    principle ingredients is paprika. Is that considered Bulgarian, too?

    I know he'll love it! I ate the last of mine a couple of days ago. It
    was just as good a few days after baking it.

    Oops! (And I'm going to use rice instead of noodles, b/c Bill thinks
    it sops up the "gravy" better.)

    @@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

    Bulgarian Beef Stew

    soups and stews

    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    4 cups chopped onions
    10 garlic cloves, minced
    8 bay leaves
    3 1/2 pounds boneless beef chuck; cut into 1/2 inch pieces
    3 tablespoons sweet hungarian paprika
    1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
    1 teaspoon dried summer savory
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    3 cups beef stock or canned broth
    1/3 cup dry red wine
    1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
    1 tablespoon all purpose flour
    12 ounces egg noodles
    1/4 cup chopped parsley

    Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and
    bay leaves. Sauté until onions are golden, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle
    meat with salt and pepper. Add to pot. Add paprika, lemon peel, savory
    and cayenne pepper; stir until meat is coated. Add stock and wine.
    Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until meat is very
    tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour 30 minutes.

    Using slotted spoon, transfer meat to bowl. Mix butter and flour in
    small bowl until smooth paste forms. Add to cooking liquid in pot,
    whisking constantly. Simmer until cooking liquid thickens to sauce
    consistency, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Season sauce with
    salt and pepper. Return meat to sauce. (Can be made 1 day ahead.
    Cover; chill.) Cook noodles in large pot of boiling salted water until
    tender but still firm to bite. Drain. Transfer to large bowl.

    Bring stew to simmer. Spoon over noodles. Sprinkle with parsley and
    serve.

    Thanks! I prefer noodles, but my hubby is a rice lover too. I
    usually have leftover rice on hand in the refrigerator, so I would
    make noodles to serve with it for dinner and then he can snack on the
    leftovers with rice.
