Apple Raspberry Lattice Cake

"Another gem from the shores of Georgian Bay, this recipe is the first place winner in the 2005, local contest, celebrating apple harvest time, and sponsored by the Meaford Express and the Town of Blue Mountains, Courier-Herald. This contest is an annual event, and entered recipes are featured in a cookbook produced by the sponsoring newspapers. Perfect for a "Pot Luck", or church social."

    I made this yesterday because it had two of my favourite flavours, Apple and Raspberry.. I wasn't dissapointed, it was lovely,(notice Im speaking in the past tense) It was very easy to make though my lattice work left something to be desired. The recipe was easy to follow, I loved the addition of the almond extract, reminded me of a bakewell tart. I didnt eat all myself DD took most of it home to feed to her room mates and the feedback is "when can you make another". Thanks for the recipe.

    What a delicious recipe and so perfect for this time of the year! It was so easy to make and was all eaten in no time. The only change I made to the recipe was to mix up a little glaze with confectioners sugar and milk to drizzle over the servings. I did this instead of dusting it with the sugar. Thanks for sharing the recipe!


<p>Gone, but not Forgotten. Where is she? someone asked. Not far was the loud response. Certainly not hiding in a large roasting pan, although I do have one about the size of a hog. <br /> <br />If I don't do this now, I never will, and if I never will, who will tell me if I am any good at the literature game? I am taking some time off to concentrate on writing a book...and you people have been distracting me. Oh yeah, sez you... What kinda book? Well, one with about 200 pages, give or take a dozen or so... maybe 300 who knows? Everyone knows Toolie has a lot to say at the best of times. <br /> <br />A DIY book??? Naaahhh, I'll leave that to the real mechanics at Canadian Tire and Home Depot. <br /> <br />A Recipe Book? Yeah, Right!!!! Like I would compete with this site or any other... Not in this lifetime... I have a tough enough time competing with some of you chefs, so I just don't, and won't. <br /> <br />Oh sure, I will cook some of your recipes, for special occasions. Pictures? Who knows? but don't hold your breath. Posting in the forums? Perhaps, but not on a regular basis... Posting recipes??? from time to time.... <br /> <br />Why hang around, you say? Because I wanna keep my terrific handle. There is only one TOOLBELT DIVA folks... Dat Be Me! <br /> <br />Remember, be careful what you say, you might find yourself in the second paragraph of page 150, or thereabouts. <br /> <br />In October, 2007 my youngest sister, Marie lost her battle with ALS. In her memory, therefore, I post the following: <br /> <br />SISTERS <br /> <br />Time passes. Life happens. Distance separates. Jobs come and go. Love waxes and wanes. Hearts break. Parents die. Careers end. Life happens ... <br /> <br />BUT...... Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you. <br /> <br />When you have to walk beside one dear to you in that lonesome valley, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf. <br /> <br />They will walk beside you, share your sorrow and share your tears, knowing all the while God is there with you, to give you the strength and faith you need and the everlasting blessings of healing love. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE HAPPEN IN THE WORLD (M. Gandhi) <br /> <br />IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO BECOME WHAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE (Georges Eliot) <br /> <br />THAT WHICH WE PERSIST IN DOING BECOMES EASIER, NOT THAT THE TASK ITSELF HAS BECOME EASIER, BUT THAT OUR ABILITY TO PERFORM IT HAS IMPROVED.
