Apple CrispPosted: October 22, 2012
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??
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!
Delightful Apple Scones, meet Delightful Apple Crisp. Yum, meet Yum.
The last full week of October, my goodness….time is flying. Enjoy the evening!
