Most dads love dessert or least the dad at my house does. I decided to seek out a recipe that my guys could enjoy during their father/son evening last Friday and I could make a Father’s Day recipe that for my husband’s Father’s Day dinner. The dessert I was looking for needed spell out dad. I looked through all my recipe books and online to find the perfect one. Finally, I found a recipe for Dutch Apple Dessert on Snackpicks.com, that looked easy enough for JDaniel and me to put together. Did you notice that the D in Dutch, the A in apple, and the D in dessert spell dad?
While gathering the ingredients was an adventure, making our D.A.D or Dutch Apple Dessert was really easy.
Wait! Let me give you the ingredients list before I share how we made it.
1 can ( 14 oz.) of sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 oz.) container of sour cream
1/4 cup of lemon juice
1 (21 oz.) can of apple pie filling
1/4 cup of finely chopped walnuts
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
- Crush one sleeve of graham crackers using a food chopper. ( You can really chop them with any tool you like.)
- Melt the margarine or butter or dairy spread in the microwave for 15 seconds.
- Mix the graham cracker crumbs with the melted margarine.
- Press the mixture into the bottom of an 11 x 7 x 1/2 inch baking dish.
Mix the condensed milk, sour cream, and lemon juice together in a small bowl until thoroughly mixed.
- Spread this mixture over the graham cracker crust. If there is any left in the bowl, you may want to sample it. It is really wonderful.
- Spread almost all of the apple pie filling over the condensed milk mixture. Save just a little bit for your child to sample. JDaniel was really anxious to try just a little spoonful of the apple pie filling.
- Sprinkle cinnamon over the apple pie filling and place chopped walnuts over the cinnamon. A little cinnamon can go a long way. If you are making this dessert with a child, you will want to supervise the adding of the cinnamon.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes.
After making this dessert, I went to a dinner hosted by the wonderful lady who leads my table group at our church’s Mentor Mom group. When I got home, half of the dessert was gone. I asked JDaniel about it the next day and he said that my husband had only had a little bit. JDaniel admitted that he had had most of it. Why? Dad is trying to be good about portion control and apparently JDaniel isn’t.
