Favorite Fall Recipes - Apple Crumble Cake


I would like to thank Katie for sharing her family’s recipe for Apple Crumble Cake. She made a comment about it on our
Apple Appliqué Block, and I asked her if she would share. She did and I made the Apple Crumble yesterday. It was a monumental success! My 8 year old niece told me it was the best cake she ever had. Hey, that’s saying something, right? Just an FYI thing. I am including the recipe supplied by Katie. I am including her notes at the end. You will notice that I included in parentheses the tablespoon equivalents that I used for butter. This definitely was an easy recipe to prepare. I must admit when I “squished” it in the pan, it didn’t seem like there was enough batter to hold it together... but I was wrong. It turned out to be a surprisingly firm cake. I also took Katie’s recommendation and doubled the topping. Definitely the way to go. So... if you get a chance, try this! It smells like fall and tastes like heaven. Enjoy!

Wee Folk Kitchens

EDIT: Our Gingerbread Ghosts can be found HERE!
Yes, yes, yes. We know. Wee Folk Art IS a crafting blog. We share the projects we do with and for our families... all in an effort to enrich our lives. But cooking, gardening, baking, decorating... are all crafts... creative outlets... when done with spirit. For that reason we decided to try something new.

In our homes, we are driven by the seasons. The clothes we wear, the food we prepare, the music we listen to, heck, even the time we go to bed, are all influenced by the seasons. But no where is this influence more noticeable then in our cooking. Now is the time for our heavy spices... cinnamon, nutmeg, sage, ginger. Fall is the time for our big stock pots... pots that simmer sauces and soups, stews and ciders. And all the delicious fall produce... apples and pumpkins, squashes and cabbages. WE LOVE FALL FOOD!

So... here's the something new part. We are asking our readers... even you quiet ones... to share your favorite fall recipes. You know the ones I'm talking about. That 1 food that triggers the start of fall. The...Read more

You Say Jack-O-Lantern, I Say Harvest Pumpkin!


You have heard us often talk about the many uses for our applique blocks... that's why we create so many of them. We've talked about enlarging them, reducing them, turning them into wood, stuffies, stencils or cross stitch. What we really haven't talked about, though, is how colors can dramatically change the look of the design.

I designed a pumpkin pattern, and through the use of color, (and a bit of "flair") gave our pumpkin design two completely different looks.

Our Jack-O-Lantern almost jumps off the screen, with it's vibrant oranges set against the drastic black. It "screams" Halloween night! Then, work the same design out of rust, browns and golds, and our pumpkin is warm and inviting... like a Thanksgiving dinner with loved ones! Rather a fun experiment in color, don't you think?

As always, the pumpkin was designed for a 6" x 6" block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. The Pumpkin Applique Block can be found HERE or in our FREE Applique Patterns. Enjoy!

We included several sets of Jack-O-Lantern mouths, noses and eyes in our directions, but if the "spirit"...Read more

Dress Up Vest

I got a chance to make Bug a darker vest for his pirate costume (check out the pirate shirt un-pattern here) and took a bunch of pictures along the way. Here is the Dress Up Vest Un-Pattern or you can find it in our Free Patterns Section. I will also be sharing the quick directions for making the sash and rings.Read more

Apple Applique Block

I was going to start this post talking about how much I love fall, but I've already said that... many times. Instead, I'm just going to introduce our Apple Applique Block, tell you I made it to fit a 6" x 6" block, and remind you that you can enlarge or reduce the pattern to meet your needs. As usual, I'll tell you that you can find the pattern for the Apple Applique Block HERE or in our FREE Applique Patterns. I will also give my ubiquitous "Enjoy"!

Having fulfilled the status quo... I'm going to share our family's "mostest" favorite recipe for using apples... Apple Crisp. This recipe originally came from an early 70s Betty Crocker cookbook, but since my family LOVES the crispy top, over time I wound up doubling and even tripling the top. So, here is the double topping version of our Apple Crisp. We usually serve it with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream, and a shot of whipped cream. Enjoy!

APPLE CRISP
4 cups pared tart apples (about 4 medium)
1 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 cup Gold Medal Flour

Pixie's Party Purse

One of the very first patterns we shared with our readers over a year ago was our Treasure Pouch. It was meant to be a spare pocket for the wee ones when they went on walk-abouts. It was made out of felt and flannel. They still use them constantly, but since that time I've kept looking at them thinking... "Hey, with the right fabric, we could really dress up that pouch". Well... for Pixie's birthday, I made the annual party dress and decided she needed a Party Purse. So, I grabbed the Treasure Pouch pattern as a starting point, and tweaked a little here, added and little there, and wah lah... our newfangled Party Purse! Directions for Pixie's Party Purse can be found HERE or in our FREE Open Patterns. Enjoy!
