New Seasons & Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

It has been almost eight months since I last posted.

Eight months.

So much life has happened in the past few seasons. Spring and summer were filled with so many hard things. So many big things. But just as the weather turned a little cooler…this new season has brought some really good things. New things for my little family of three; and I couldn’t be more grateful for fall.

Last Friday Ean, Nora and I went and picked apples at an orchard near by. It didn’t take long to fill up the five gallon bucket, but the kids had a blast, and loved being tall enough to reach the apples. Nora requested to make apple pie at least six times, and I can’t wait to make one with her in the next few days. The first recipe we made with our freshly picked apples was apple crisp, so I thought I would get back to blogging. It is incredibly easy to make and has all of the flavors of fall.

Apple Crisp

7 cups sliced apples

1 cup sugar

3 tbsp flour

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

For the Topping:

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 cup oatmeal

1 cup flour

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter, chilled

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Core, peel & slice apples. In a large bowl, mix together apples, sugar, cinnamon, flour and salt and spread into an 13×9 pan. In a medium bowl, mix together baking soda, baking powder, oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Layer on top of apples. Bake at 325 degrees F for 45 minutes or until top starts to brown and apples are tender. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream. Enjoy!
