You see all these black cats come out about this time a year scouting the houses they want to spook, or live under for the fall/winter.
It's a sure sign when the clouds are more frequent, and the leaves change color.
And a sign that I need new paint cause we haven't used it since the last part of spring.
A dog standing in the window will surely give it away, because all he wants to do is be warm and snug in his bed.
6 sweet dessert apples(pink lady is what I used)
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 Tb buttershots(butterscotch schnapps) optional
2 packages of the Pepperidge Farm soft baked sugar cookies
Peel apples, and remove the ends and core. Slice about 1/4 inch thick and place in bowl.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a heavy deep skillet on medium heat, add brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until dissolved.
Pour apples carefully in pan and toss to coat. Keep the heat at medium and you should notice the jucies starting to come through. Stirring often for about 20 minutes or until nice and tender.
If you have a helper, now is a good time while your stirring to have them work on the really hard crumble.
