MY BIG SUPRISE from hubby arrived Wednesday evening

Your finished product makes great gifts
Hello again,
       Recipe #3 already getting close to Christmas. Boy did I get a big surprise Wednesday evening a Cricut Imagine was delivered to my door......can you believe it? I couldn't!!! It came from HSN and let me tell you I was printing and cutting in no time. I was so scared to even think about getting one after some of the reviews but hubby said you can't go by that all the he ordered it and I had no trouble at all and it worked PERFECT!!!!! A must if you have considered it!!! I had a ball! Over IMPRESSED!! Well anyway I used the Cricut Imagine to cut and print the labels from Kate's Kitchen cart. Too too cute!!! The fabric is a depression print. I also used twine and Tim Holtz distress inks.
        Apple Cake in a Jar
2/3 cup of Crisco shortening
2 2/3 cups of white sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. of cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. of baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups of all purpose flour
2/3 cup of water
3 cups of apples cut up or chopped
2/3 cups raisins
2/3 cups of pecans (optional) chopped
jars wide mouth pint or quart (pint work best)
Usually 8-9 for pints size and 3 for quart size. Must be wide mouthed jars.
Mix all ingredients together in order given. Sterilize jars and lids...drying well. Grease jars with shortening. Fill the jars half full and bake on middle rack at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or when knife inserted comes out clean.  Promptly remove the jars from the oven, wipe the rims of the jars with a wet warm cloth and then dry now place flats on and seal with ring allow to cool and then check to see if the seal popped by touching top if it does not make a sound then it sealed and will last up to a year shelf life. When dumped from jar slice and use cream cheese frosting on little cakes. YUMMY! Recipe from Frances Lassiter of Aulander NC. Given to me in 2003.
        Hope you like it. It makes a sweet gift and so EASY!!! Let me know if you tried it! It also makes a great gift to mail to a service person...they can enjoy a fresh moist cake anytime. Until tomorrow.....Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop :o)
