Every year when the Ruritans make fried apple pies to sell, Mom goes down the day before and cooks the apples and makes the dough. Then the volunteers come in the next day to make the pies. They have it worked out so that different people do different jobs.

These are the pie rollers.
Mom has made the dough in small biscuits
so the rollers roll them out
to fit a saucer.

Then the pies go to the fillers and crimpers.
They fill and close the pies and cut off any excess dough.

This is Russell.
He takes the pies from the
fillers and crimpers
and delivers them to the fryers.

This is our friend, Steve.
It is is first year to help.
He's doing a great job.

See those beautiful pies

Mom made bread this morning
so they could have a snack.
She served it hot from the oven,
with butter and homemade apple butter.

And here are the taste testers.
What a wonderful job!

Have a Fantastic Friday,
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Do you think those three cutie pies would share a little nibble with us? We are all drooling here and a tad hungry this AM.

OMG, now you have mom drooling! She wants to know if you'd share your apple butter recipe? She's never made it before but she's eaten store bought and we know that this just doesn't compare to homemade! You guys are so lucky to be taste testers!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
