Apple Crisp

Okay….I swear I had a post on this when I made it last year during apple-picking season.  What the heck?  Where did it go?  Or am I going completely NUTS?  (DT would tell you I went nuts long ago, so that could be the answer.)

Well, anyway – I baked up an apple-y storm yesterday, starting with spicy apple scones, then moved on to an autumn tradition, apple crisp.

Here is the very worn and splattered recipe from my mamma:

Aren’t the most popular recipes a crinkly, spilled-on mess??

apple crisp ingredients

Ingredients:  lemon juice, nutmeg, cinnamon, oats, white flour, brown sugar, butter, and apples.

Four cups of apples go into a cooking-sprayed dish.

I drizzled about three tablespoons of lemon juice over the apples for some added tang.

Now, the “crisp” ingredients:  flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  I like a little extra brown sugary-spice crumble, so I make 1-1/2 or double what the recipe calls for.

A stick of softened butter is added:

The crumble mixture was poured on top of the apples and patted down.

The oven got a workout yesterday – round two!

About 40-45 minutes later at 375 degrees, this!

We’ve got apples coming out of our ears!

The last full week of October, my goodness….time is flying.  Enjoy the evening!
