About 5 medium apples, peeled and sliced thinly
(I like to use a variety of sweet and sour apples to give the
most exciting flavors!)
2 TBS sugar (optional)
1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 TSP nutmeg or cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine
Put your apples into a 2 quart baking dish.
Sprinkle 2 TBS sugar over the apples and lightly toss.
(You can omit that extra sugar step, I usually do)
In a medium bowl,combine oats, brown sugar, flour, & nutmeg.
Next, cut the butter into dry ingredients until it makes
crumbly , coarse crumbs.
(I don't have the right kitchen utensils to do this very
easily, but I just cut the 1/2 cube of butter into small
chunks, then toss it around with a fork..)
Finally, scatter the topping over your dish of apples.
Bake your tasty treat at 375* for 30 minutes, until
the top is golden and bubbly.
Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream..yum!!
I used the Better Homes and Garden's recipe for this crisp. There's a lot of room for experiment so don't be afraid to add chopped nuts, extra oats, or use peaches or pears instead!
Today I'm thankful...
For my dad and the time we get to spend together
That I've been doing well at resisting sugar!
Because I had a good dose of ambition today and got the house cleaned up
