These luscious apple-filled pastries are brushed with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Water is then poured into the pan, forming a delicious buttery sauce as it bakes to perfection.
I imagine Dorothy and her family still enjoying this timeless dessert. Through the years, Dorothy became involved in the Girl Scout organization. While 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Girls Scouts of the USA, Dorothy celebrated her own milestone. Dorothy is now an 86-year-old grandmother celebrating 75 years of being a Girl Scout herself. She has her own wonderful memories of camping trips, crafts, and other adventures which I bet included cooking over a campfire! For twelve years she was the leader of daughter Melinda’s troop. Melinda says of her mother, “It was great. She was an awesome leader. She was always very involved and enthusiastic and checked into every opportunity the girls could have. We were always going somewhere.” Now Dorothy is helping her granddaughter’s troop, and can boast of four generations of Girl Scouts. Activities like Girls Scouts and cooking keep a person going. Look at Dorothy now with the same sweet smile and tilt of the head, still looking like the winner she is. Thank you, Dorothy, for helping so many girls find their potential, and for giving us such a beautiful recipe.
