Happy Easter!!! This is the day that we celebrate Jesus rising from the dead. On Friday, He submitted to death, though He had done nothing deserving of that, so that He could be the perfect sacrifice...paying the debt for ALL of our sins, if we just trust in Him for forgiveness. But it did not end in Death, He defeated death and rose from the grave, body and soul, and now lives forever at the right hand of God! I pray that you know the joy of His salvation and the peace that it brings.
My family was here for the weekend and we had Easter lunch at my apartment. Mama made ham and I cooked some squash, asparagus, deviled eggs, and rolls. For dessert I made Rose Pie (what a perfect name for today!!!). This is a cobbler type dessert that is named after my grandmother's aunt (or cousin, we're not sure which!), Rose East. It is a cobbler that rises over the fruit.
I made an apple version, though in my mind peach is the perfect flavor. You can use any fruit that you want to use. I decided to use apples. I used the canned apples that were cooked for desserts but unsweetened and sweetened them myself. I haven't made this is a while and did realize that the batter is so liquid. It is almost the consistency of a thin pancake batter. Don't worry, this IS the way it should look and it does cook to be like a cobbler topping. Also, it doesn't fully cover the fruit. I didn't realize this and though I had done something wrong, but both Mama and Daddy said that was how it worked. So, enjoy this yummy and easy dessert with YOUR family!Rose Pie
