APPLE CRISP makes more than one debut from my oven every fall. It’s so quick and easy to throw together – and so perfect to curl up with, wrapped in your fleece blanket, letting your eyes rise above your bowl just enough to see the changing autumn colours from your window. Well, at least that’s how I eat it for the optimal experience.
As easy as it is to make, it’s even easier to “miggle” or devour quickly away! It’s no surprise that my house smells like apple much through September and October.
I challenge you to try and only make this once this season… I have yet to do it.
After trying several recipes, I found what I believe to be the most delicious and hunger-sized friendly apple crisp. It’s from www.simplyrecipes.com.
Makes for 9 x 12 inch pan.
7 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
4 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, and vanilla. Toss to combine.
2. Layer sliced apples in a 9 x 12 (or approximately same size) baking dish.
3. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and oatmeal in a bowl. Cut in the butter. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples.
4. Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crunch and apples are tender.
Please try and let it cool even for a few minutes. From years of impatience I have developed a resistance to the boiling apples fresh out of the oven. Take your time – and please remember to let your nose fall close to your bowl – and take a big sniff in of that aroma!
