Good Morning! Welcome T for Tuesday dwellers.
We've had a lovely weekend. It was an extra long weekend here in Spain. Monday was a national holiday! So people were visiting each other from afar and going for picnics etc.
I made a Dutch apple pie for our friends on Sunday afternoon. My mum taught me to make it.There is a little bit left, I was just about to have a cup of tea. Would you like a piece? Now, now, don't fight!
I posted a photo of it on Facebook this weekend and got several reactions. Mostly people wanting the recipe (Bridget, this is for you).
The dough is made with runny butter and made into a dough. Then, rather than rolled out (it would be too sticky to roll), you push it into place with your hands, and work it up the sides of the mold.
Here is the recipe :
For those of you across the pond used to 'cups', I went to a conversion site and came up with the following:
300 gr = 1 and a quarter cup plain flour
125 gr = half a cup sugar
200 gr butter = 0.9 cup (nearly one)
100 gr = half cup raisins
I hope that helps.
Keeping in with the Dutch theme, the postcard for today is one that I am sending (not receiving) for a change.
I bought it in Holland when I was there last. It's on its way to someone who specifically asked for a card with a bike on it.
As you might know, in the Netherlands everybody rides a bike and there are literally millions! These particular two boys on the card are not Dutch, but from the Chong Khneas village in Cambodia. I think it is a great photo, don't you?
I'm linking in with Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover for T for Tuesday. Come and say hello if you have anything drinkable to share.
Have a lovely day and see you hopefully tomorrow when I link up with WOYWW (What's On Your Work desk Wednesday).
