I found a few new Fall recipes to share.  It is such a gorgeous Fall day here in TN but it is cold out there!  🙂 
I am a fan of an old time favorite and this first recipe has just a little twist to it.  I have always made my Grilled cheese sandwiches out of bread of course but this sounds like a great idea and the girls and I are going to try it out tonight while Bill is on the road.

Double Cheese Sandwiches

Harvest Medley Pie

Prep Time: 20 Min        Total Time 3 Hours


1box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
3 1/2cups peeled, chopped Granny Smith apples
1cup mixed dried apricots, cranberries and blackberries
1/4cup chopped walnuts
2/3cup packed brown sugar
1/4cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 2In large bowl, mix apples, dried fruit and walnuts. In small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and pumpkin pie spice. Gently toss with fruit mixture; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. To make lattice top, cut second crust into 1/2-inch-wide strips with pastry cutter. Place half of the strips across filling in pie plate. Place remaining strips crosswise across first strips. Trim ends of strips even with edge of bottom crust. Fold trimmed edge of bottom crust over ends of strips, forming a high stand-up rim. Seal and flute.
  • 3Bake 30 minutes; sprinkle top with granulated sugar. If necessary, cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cool at least 2 hours before serving. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

I hope you get a chance to try some of these!  I will keep looking for more!

God Bless,
