Apple Season — Apple Cobbler in Linda Christianson Baker:
I’m not sure what happened to September (I’ve certainly been delinquent about posting here on my Blog). I spent one (very busy) weekend helping out at a Pottery Sale at Guillermo Cuellar’s Studio. I spent the next weekend relaxing at my Wisconsin Farm – Enjoying the gorgeous Autumn Color! I can’t believe it’s already October. Time for Apples — Buckets of Apples, and Apple Cider, and Apple Cobbler, and Apple-Everything-Else!
First – A few photos from my Farm Trip:

The Food – Apple Cobbler:
The Pottery Weekend at Guillermo’s was busy and totally fun. I always enjoy hanging out with pottery friends. And of course, I picked up a few new pots and plates and even a new Linda Christianson Baking Dish!! With a bag full of Apples (from a friend) — I simply had to make a simple Autumn Apple Cobbler.
I peeled and chopped about six apples; tossed with spices and a bit of sugar (and a drizzle of Maple Syrup). I mixed my always-reliable Cobbler Dough together. Finally, I half-filled the Baking Dish with apples; I blopped about six cobbles on top; a dusting of sugared cinnamon — And popped in the oven. About 35 minutes later — Wonderful, comfort-food Apple Cobbler!
Totally Autumn-Yummy! With a scoop of Vanilla Gelato — A perfect October dessert!!
The Pottery – Linda Christianson Woodfired Pottery:
Linda Christianson is a much-loved Minnesota Potter. I’ve attended several workshops with Linda — Her work is gently wheel thrown (kick-wheel), thoughtfully assembled, and wonderfully wood fired. I’m tickled that I finally had a chance to find a few special pieces that definitely belonged in my life. The rectangular Baker, perfect for my tasty Apple Cobbler. And a charming Bowl for serving my Cobbler-with-Gelato!!
Happy October everyone! Happy Apple Season!!
