Thanksgiving Baking

While my amazing chef of a husband is preparing the turkey and sides, I was busy doing all the baking for our Thanksgiving meal. For a family of five we had enough pie to last us for a few weeks. We enjoyed a homemade apple pie, pumpkin pie and I also made brioche rolls to have with our feast. I was thoroughly enjoying fall baking in our brand new kitchen even though it was more than we needed.

For the apple pie, I much prefer a crumble topping.  Can't decide between apple pie and apple crumble - make an apple crumble pie!

Recipe for Apple Crumble Pie Topping:

3/4 C. all-purpose flour
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/3 C. brown sugar
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter

Mix together the ingredients until combined and crumbly and cover the top of the apples.

I used the Ina Garten mini brioche roll recipe and it was fairly foolproof to make. I could not find my brioche tins anywhere, so I made three small balls of dough to place in each muffin tin. to make the three clover rolls and they turned out quite nice. I had enough brioche to make a few mini loaves and used the extra to make brioche french toast the next morning.
