We have gotten hooked on baked oatmeal with apples. My neighbour gives me as much apples I can carry and also she will store apples for the winter for me.

When kids we would always go and pick up dropped apples with mom and dad. They are cheaper so can get a lot more! Can't wait to go picking!

Apple Strudel Easy.
Just a throw together recipe.
Filling :-
tin of pie apples or sliced fresh tossed in lemon juice to stop browning, brown sugar, cinnamon, little bit of allspice, brandy (just a dash)
Mix ingredients to taste, then leave to sit a while (to let the flavours mix)

Use either filo pastry (4 or 5 layers, brushed with melted butter) or puff pastry.
Wrap it into a log shape, brush with butter and sprinkle with extra sugar.
Make a couple of diagonal slits in top.
Pop it in the oven at the temp recommended for cooking the pastry on the ever reliable packet.
Bake until golden brown, serve with whipped cream, icecream or both.

Suzi's Note:
if out of brown use white sugar and nice to add sultanas/golden raisins if desired.
I like to serve with custard in a jug on the side.
