Ed's Apples, Boz' Peaches

Ed Fallon is sweet on his mom's pie (you, too, can have his mom's prized apple pie recipe if you give him your dough). He's not so sweet on his opponent in the 3rd District Democratic Primary Leonard Boswell.

But Boswell gets a little sweet revenge though. Today he received the endorsement of the Service Employees International Union Local 199 (5,000 nurses, janitors, child care workers).

I can't seem to find the Congressman's apple pie recipe. But I did find one for his "Died and Gone to Heaven Peach Pie".

3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small package vanilla pudding (not instant)
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 large can of peaches (3-1/2 cups), save the juice
One 8-ounce package of cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, pudding mix, egg, and milk in a large bowl. Beat for two minutes on medium speed. Pour into a 10-inch greased pie pan. Place drained peaches on top, then set aside. Combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 Tablespoons peach juice. Beat for two minutes until smooth. Spoon on top of the peaches and keep away from the edge -- about 1 inch. Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.

There are too many casinos in Iowa now. They are causing many people who are hooked on gambling to loose everything they have; homes, farms, family.
