Shopping Around The World!

Standard
I JUST LOVE TO SHOP!!!!!

I JUST LOVE TO SHOP!!!!!

Howdy shoppers (and eaters!).   Another fun blog hop from my Cousin Bacon of PIG LOVE………..where Bacon gets us all to share a recipe and the prices we paid for the ingredients and we can laugh or cry at what WE pay compared to everyone ELSE in the world!   Fun yes?

This month’s challenge was to provide details for an appetizer, meal, or dessert with at least FIVE ingredients………..Mom has this really yummy thing she does with APPLES this time of the year when apples are plentiful so that’s what I’ll tell you about today!

Caramel Apple Dip

APPLEDIP1

Ingredients:

8 oz. cream cheese

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

1 teasp. vanilla extract

1 tblsp. granulated sugar

APPLES

Here’s what we paid!

Cream Cheese:  8 oz. Harris Teeter Brand $1.97

Dark Brown Sugar:  16 oz. Domino Brand $1.25

Vanilla Extract:  Harris Teeter Brand $3.77

Granulated Sugar:  `16 oz. Domino Brand $1.69

Apples:   Gala apples $.99/lb.

How to:

Stir first three ingredients to blend and spoon into a 10 ounce tiny casserole dish OR ramekin and level off the top with a spatula.  Cover and pop in the refrigerator for AT LEAST two hours.  Preheat broiler five inches from the heat…..sprinkle the granulated sugar on the top and put the ramekin/casserole IN a cake pan filled with ice (no I’m not kidding) and broil for three to five minutes until the sugar melts on top!   Let it sit five minutes (so you don’t burn your mouth to bits!) and serve it with apple wedges……………OH MY!  Mom and Dad say this is DELISH.

So that’s it for another SHOP AROUND THE WORLD from the town of Warrenton, Virginia!
