Yesterday we went apple picking with my husband’s parents in Warwick, NY. It was exceptionally fun tasting all of the different kinds of apples. Although slightly dangerous, as we found out shaking the branches can lead to a plethora of falling apples …..on your head at a much more rapid speed than might be imagined. Like large BB’s shooting down on your cranium. But no concussions or any internal bleeding (that we know of) occurred. Then on the way home, we witnessed a high speed motorcycle chase around the windy roads of Greenwood Lake. The guy somehow got away on foot….he must have had his V8 for breakfast….
Anyway, I digress….last night I made some apple crisp with some of our 16 pounds of apples….. and I’d like to share this tried and true recipe with you!
Apple Crisp Recipe
Peel, core and slice about 6-10 apples depending on size.
Toss apples with 1 tsp cinnamon, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1/4 cup of lemon juice.
Put apples in an 9×13 inch baking dish or pan. Dot with 1/4 cup butter.
Melt 1/2 cup butter and mix with 1 cup flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup whole oats, 2 tsps cinnamon.
Make “crumbs” with hands and place on top of apple mixture.
Bake at 350 F for about 45 minutes until top is golden brown and apples are bubbling. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream! Enjoy! (If top starts to get too dark, cover w/tin foil and finish baking)
