2. Uncle Jerry's secret stolen Apple Dumpling Surprise recipe.

uncle jerry's apple dumpling surprise

Crust: 1-1/4 cups flour, 1/3 cup powdered sugar & 1/2 cup butter

Mix above ingredients and pat in greased 9 x 13 pan. Then peel, core and slice 5 apples (5 cups) and mix in a bowl with 1-1/4 cups sugar, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 cup flour. Pour this mixture over the crust. Dot the apples with 3/4 cup butter (1-1/2 sticks). Bake 40-45 min at 350 degrees.

Cool completely. With a wire wisk, mix two small packages of french vanilla instant pudding and 2 cups milk until pudding consistency. Spread pudding over the apples when cooled. Frost with 8 oz. cool whip and top with chopped walnuts (about 1 cup).

3. This ADORABLE word art that I so badly want in my basement.


4. We are about to have gobs of bookshelves in our basement. I'd like to make the most of the space both functionally and creatively. Click HERE for a great post on artfully stacking your shelves.

5. Speaking of bookshelves, isn't this cool?

A revolving bookcase - great idea for a small space.

Happy Friday!!!
