Apple Crisp has been on my mind
this first week of Fall!!!
Our old farm orchard was loaded with apples this summer.
So much so that some of the branches broke down with
the extra weight.
In years past we used to pick them up (mostly they fall to the ground
because the trees are so old and tall that picking them off the tree is almost
impossible) and then take them to a local cider mill to be pressed
into apple cider juice.
I gave in to my craving for Apple Crisp with this super simple
recipe that I learned in Home Economics at high school - that's a VERY long time ago!
This recipe is very forgiving ... increase the amount of apples,
throw in a wrinkled peach that's been in the crisper too long,
increase the crumb topping, etc. It always turns out delicious!
Preheat oven to 375F.
Arrange 2-3 Cups sliced Apples in a buttered casserole or cake pan.
Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice and ¼ tsp. cinnamon.
In a bowl combine 1/3 Cup Flour, pinch of salt, ¼ Cup Brown Sugar, 1/3 Cup rolled Oats.
Add 3 Tbsp. melted butter and mix until crumbly. Spread over fruit.
Bake for 40 min.
Serve with ice-cream or thickened fruit juice sauce.
Till next time ...... does the season change make you crave Fall's deliciousness?
