Fall Family Events in Baton Rouge

Fall is in full swing and that means cooler weather and more time outside! We know how stir crazy the kiddos can get after being at school all day!

That’s when it’s time to load up the family and go do some fun activities and festivals! We have complied a list of some of our favorite Fall Family Events to do in the Baton Rouge and surrounding areas! These activities are all kid friendly, inexpensive (some even being free!), and fun activities that are sure to bring the family together this fall season!

The holiday season is fast approaching and we will all soon be preparing for Thanksgiving! Just like purchasing a new car, planning a Thanksgiving Day menu can be overwhelming and in both cases, All Star Kia of Baton Rouge is here to help! Thanksgiving is about coming together with family and friends to give thanks for all of the things that make life great. We wanted to share one of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes with you to make planning your menu a little easier and help save you a little time that can be spent with your loved ones. And if you plan on being a guest for Thanksgiving dinner, bring along this dish and you won’t disappoint. This twist on an old classic holiday recipe will have your family and friends begging for more!

Caramel Apple Slab Pie

– 12 to 15 baking apples

– 1/3 cup granulated sugar

– 1 teaspoon cinnamon

– 1/2 teaspoon cloves

– 1/2 teaspoon mace

– 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons flour

– 1/2 cup caramel apple dip

– 1/2 to 1 tablespoon salt

– 2 tablespoons milk

– 1/2 cup brown sugar

– 1/2 cup butter

– 2 tablespoon lemon juice

 

Pie Crust

– 5 cups flour

– 2 tablespoons sugar

– 2 teaspoons salt

– 2 cups shortening

– 2 eggs

– 1/2 cup water

– 2 tablespoons vinegar

Crust: Combine egg, water, and vinegar in a bowl. Whip with a fork until light and frothy. Set aside. In separate bowl, mix together, flour, sugar and salt. Using a paddle attachment on a mixer, or using a fork and mixing by hand, cut shortening into the flour mixture. Add wet ingredients to flour and shortening mixture and mix well. (Again you can use your hands). When everything is incorporated, and the dough is slightly sticky, but not sticking to the edges of the bowl, use a wet cloth to dampen the counter space you are working in, and put wax paper on top of the damp spot. Put a little flour on the wax paper and then roll out half of your unbaked crust dough, you want a rectangle big enough to fill the bottom of a jellyroll pan plus some, so the edges come up and over the pan by about a centimeter. I use a 12½ x 17 jelly roll pan or cookie sheet (Everyone calls them something different).

Peel and slice apples into a bowl. Mix together granulated sugar, 2 Tbs flour, and spices. Dump over the apples in the bowl. Sprinkle 1 Tbs lemon juice over the top of the apples and sugar mixture, and stir well, coating apples with sugar mix. Pour apples into prepared jellyroll pan. Mix together caramel apple dip, salt, and milk, set aside. Mix together ½ cup flour and brown sugar, cut in ¼ cup butter to make a crumb like mixture, and combine with caramel mix. Dot with ¼ cup butter (cut into chunks).

Sprinkle flour and sugar crumble with caramel over whole pie evenly. Using a finger dipped in water, wet the very edge of the crust all away around the pie. Roll out top crust. Put top crust on pie. (*See notes for tips). Press the two edges (top and bottom) together. Cut off overlapping dough and set it aside (if there is excess). Cut air vents into the top crust, brush with egg whites and sprinkle with sugar.

Use excess dough to create decorate leaves, turkeys, etc., to make crust pretty! Bake at 375 for approximate 1 hour. (Time varies on how big your apple slices were and how your oven runs, but approximately 50-60 minutes cook time). Before serving feel free to garnish with a drizzle of caramel and a sprinkle of large crystal salt.
