After tasting it at a bake sale, I got the recipe for this pie from a friend, then adapted it. I make it for family gatherings—it's everyone's favorite treat—and also for when company comes by.
Our children—6 and 3—"help" me with baking. They've learned many of their measurement in the kitchen!
Apple Roly-Poly isn't very fancy, but it's genuine "Down East" fare. It came from my grandmother. With 13 children plus the men at Grampa's sawmill, she had to do lots of cooking each day!
My husband and I have four children, 10 to 3. We crop 1,500 acres of corn, soybean, wheat and white beans.
Both my grandmother and mother made this dessert. I have five children, though (four grandchildren now also)—when my turn at the recipe came, I learned it was best to double it!
We've eaten Saucy Mocha Pudding with ice cream and whipped cream, but it's scrumptious just plain. It's very easy to prepare. So don't wait for a special occasion to try it...it sweetness any meal.
Whether I serve my torte with coffee at a luncheon or in the evening when friends visit, I always get compliments. My husband (we've been married 42 years), three children and five grandchildren are all good eaters, and it's a joy to prepare this dessert for them, too!
Cooking is something I've always enjoyed. I also like sewing, quilting and gardening. My husband and I travel by trailer as often as we can, and we're members, too, of group called "Laborers for Christ" that helps congregations build churches and schools.
My mother received this recipe from a friend of hers many years ago, and, fortunately, she shared it with me.
With Boise situated right between two large fruit-producing areas in our state, peaches are very plentiful in the summer-and who ever gets their fill of fresh peaches?
