Veterans Day Recipe

We in the US are celebrating Veterans Day today. We are acknowledging and celebrating all of our soldiers and their selfless commitment to our country and its citizens.  Those that faced the unimaginable, those that lost their lives in the line of duty, those who continue to give their all for each us. Our heroes past and present, our veterans.

Please join me in prayer as we ask our Lord to hold our service men and women in His strong arms. To cover them with His sheltering grace and presence as they stand in the gap for our protection. May all of the members of our armed forces be filled with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord’s mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters and their loved ones feel our love and support. Amen




apple pie katherines corner

What You Need

Pastry for 2 crusts (I use the premade pie crusts from the market)

8 Cups (about 3 lbs) baking apples (peeled, cored and sliced Granny Smith, Jonathan, Honeycrisp or your favorite baking apple)

2 Tbsp lemon juice

3/4 Cup white sugar

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/4 Cup flour

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

2 Tbsp Butter

1 Egg

1 Tbsp milk

Basting Brush

Large bowl

Small bowl

9 Inch pie pan

Before You Start: Preheat oven to 425° and prepare your apples, place bottom pie crust into pie pan

Lets Make It! In a bowl mix sliced apples with lemon juice coat well. In a small bowl combine sugars, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg, add to the apples and  mix well to coat. Pour coated apples into the prepared crust lined pie pan and add butter in little bits evenly all over the apples. Place second crust on top of pie filling, cut slits in top of crust to vent. Seal the edges of the crust with a fork or with your thumbs. In the small bowl, beat the egg and milk with a fork and then using your basting brush, brush mixture over top crust. Bake at 425 ° for 15 minutes. Then 350 °and bake for 40-45 minutes more or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

Serves 6-8

Katies Tid Bits* If the edges start to get to dark just add strips of foil to cover them.

  3. Amen! Our church did an awesome tribute to our military yesterday.

  4. Thank you, Katherine, for your sweet prayer and your kind thoughts. Veteran’s Day is very special to me. I can’t celebrate with my dad in law anymore, until I see him in heaven. God bless you and all of our service men and women, and our vets.

  5. God bless our veterans. What a lovely recipe too. Will definitely give it a whirl. I am stopping by via the Social Blog hop so please pop over and say hi!

  6. Loved the prayer! I have a confession, I have never made a pie. I am going to make Pumpkin pie this year for the first time. Last year I made a Pumpkin Pudding type pie and my family said they want just a good old fashion Pie, so I am gonna try. Your apple pie sounds delicious.

  7. Thank you Katherine for your wonderful prayer. I join you in sending my thoughts and prayers for all the troops and their families.

    Love the recipe! Apple Pie is one of my favorites!

  8. What a great tribute to the men and women who place their own lives on the line to protect us. I think of the sacrifices that they make on our behalf and am so very glad that our first lady, Michelle and Dr. Biden have made this one of the causes they champion…to make sure that all veterans get the proper medical treatment upon returning home and can find jobs where they can put all the experience they learned while in the military to good use.

    I was just talking to husband about making a cherry pie yesterday. Although, I might have to try the apple instead…it looks delicious! :)

  9. Hi, Katie

    This looks yummy!

  10. That looks delicious! I only make pie on special occasions, usually Thanksgiving. I like to go all out and make everything homemade (including the pie crust) so I only do it once a year!

    Beautiful prayer for the veterans.
