Apple Shortcake – 1971 Edmonds Cookbook






Week 4, the next recipe installment of trying to make and photograph a recipe from my 1971 Edmonds cookbook. I am finding it a struggle to keep up with the challenge of doing one every week. But when I do it is worth the wait. Apple Shortcake is an old favorite. When I was a kid, we always used home grown apples. I used apples from my tree for this blog. I found the pastry a little hard to roll
