Apron Card with Recipe

A friend recently asked me for a recipe.  I thought it would be nice to make a card for her with a pocket inside to hold the recipe card....  this is what I came up with.  I cut the apron template out of red & white designer card stock, added the ribbons & buttons and the pocket to the front, then layered onto red card stock. (now I look at it, I should have embossed the card stock...too late now!)  I then layered it onto the designer paper again, then onto the card.  I added a pocket and put a tag inside.  The tag says "Bon Appetit"

Here is the inside with the recipe card for apple pie...

 I love this apple pie, which is actually a cross between a pie and a crumble.  Here is the recipe if you would like to give it a try.

Caramel Crunch Apple Pie

Preheat oven to 400 degs.

Line a pie dish with pastry and crimp the edges
Peel & slice up 6 - 8 Granny Smith apples. 
Place in a bowl with 1/2 cup sugar, 3 Tbs. flour, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/8 tsp.salt.  Put into crust.
In a bowl mix together - 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup margarine and 1/2 cup oatmeal.  Add to top of pie and spread out evenly.  Bake at 400 for 50 mins.
When done, remove from oven and drizzle 1/4 cup caramel sauce over the top and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
Serve warm with ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt.

Bon Appetit!

Thanks for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day!


Update: (Mon. Nov 8/10)  
This morning I looked online for this recipe and found out that it won Good Morning America's Apple Pie Contest in 2001.
It doesn't surprise me that it won, it is soooo good!
