We went apple picking last weekend - and as can be assumed, we came home with a lot of apples. More apples than we could eat, so we decided to search for some good recipes that would help us fully appreciate our apple harvest. Our super sweet new neighbors were coming over for dinner, so we hoped to impress them despite our somewhat-lacking culinary skills...and this Apple Crisp recipe from allrecipes.com was a hit!
Ingredients for apple filling:
10 cups apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (we peeled ours with a potato peeler, then cut them with a standard apple corer/divider)
1 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Ingredients for crisp topping:
1 cup oats
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Place sliced apples in a 9x13 inch pan. Combine the white sugar, 1 Tbsp of flour, and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples.
3. Combine oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and melted butter. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, or until the crisp looks nice and brown.
(Serve warm over vanilla ice cream for an extra delicious touch!)
