I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

Make a personal apple pie for National Dessert Day.

You don't need a lot of apples to

make a small apple pie.  We enjoyed a morning picking apples in Maine recently but all you need is two large apples or three small apples peeled and cut. 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  For a small pie crust, mix 1 1/2 cups of flour with 3 tablespoons of butter.  Mix until the size of small peas.  Add 3 tablespoons of water and form into a ball.  Divide into two balls; one slightly larger than the other.
Roll out the larger ball and press into a small baking dish.  It doesn't have to be perfect.
Mix 4 tablespoons of brown sugar with 1/4 cup of flour and 3 tablespoons of white sugar.
 Stir in apples.  Dot with butter.
Roll out smaller ball of dough and use as a top on the pie.  Seal and crimp edges.  Poke holes in top in shape of an "A" for apple. 
Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until golden brown.  Happy National Dessert Day!
