Harvest Luncheon For Two

Happy Harvest.

The weather is lovely this time of year.  Apples.,grapes and pumpkins are ready to be made into something special.

I set a pretty table off our study patio. The harvest tablecloth has lots of fruit.

I added these cute little acorn figures.

I made dessert. How about some baked stuffed apples?

I made this dessert for my husband and my mom.  They thoroughly enjoyed it.
These stuffed apples are easy to make. 

Yield: 3

Baked Stuffed Apples

Hollowed out apples filled with apple filling and then baked.
  • 4 large apples- your choice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • a little lemon juice
Pie crust
  • use store bought or make your own crust.


  1. Preheat oven to 375.  Peel the extra apple, core and cut into cubes.
    Slide tops off the 3 remaining apples and hollow them out. I used a melon baller. Put the hollowed out apples and diced apple in pan and set aside.
  2. In small bowl, whisk together 1 Tablespoon warm water and 2 tsp. cornstarch. Set aside.
  3. In small saucepan over medium heat melt butter.  Add diced apples lemon juice, cinnamon and sugar.  Cook apple mixture until tender.  Add the cornstarch mixture to the apples and cook for 5-6 minutes.  Fill hollowed out apples with apple mixture.
  1. I used ready made pillsbury pie crust.  Cut into lattice pieces, criss crossing over the apples.  Put apples in baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes.  Add a scoop of ice cream, caramel and enjoy.

The latest on the pool cabana.  The tile is finished inside and the mason finally showed up to start.  It looks like this baby will be finished before the rains.  Some finish work my husband has to do, but I am excited.

  13. Such a pretty Fall table for two. The acorn people are darling ! I'm so happy to see some of you that still tablescape, as it is the least I see in blogs or parties nowadays; I see mostly food which is funny, as we all started blogging with table settings and talking about the antique chinas, etc. You always do, so thank you for it too. The apples look fabulous and thanks for sharing the recipe too.

  14. Oh I LOVE baked apples. Having one at your beautiful table would be the ICE CREAM on the apple:)

  17. Hooray that the cabaña is coming along!!! I know you are way past ready for it to be finished!!! Wonderful! Your table is sweet, especially with those cute acorn figurines. They’d make cute favors for guests. I’ve never had stuffed apples, but the recipe sounds super enticing!
