Last week I posted a blog in which I talked about visiting an apple orchard down in Davenport, CA. I had a few pounds of apples and all week I kept looking at them sitting on my kitchen counter, wondering what in the heck I should make with them.
Saturday rolled around and I knew that I had to do something with the apples before they went bad and this is when I decided to make an apple crisp, with the help of my mom, who makes a delicious apple crisp.
Her recipe was pretty easy to follow and can be changed however one pleases!
- Half dozen medium sized golden delicious apples, cut into small slices
- A cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of nutmeg
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 1 stick of salted butter
- Half a cup of flower
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, prepare small casserole dish
- Cut up apples into thin slices, leaving the skin on the apple
- Once apples are all cut, place them in the dish, about 1 inch deep. Pour lemon juice over top of apples and sprinkle salt on the top. Mix this well so that all the apples are evenly covered
- In a microwave-safe dish, melt one stick of butter in the microwave.
- Add the brown sugar, the rolled oats and the flower to the melted butter.
- Next mix in the cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Once it is evenly combined, place over the top of the apples, creating an even layer
- Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes, covering with aluminum foil.
- At 15 minutes remaining, uncover dish and continue to bake.
Let the completed dish cool for 10 minutes. Serve alone or with ice-cream!
