I hadn't felt up to doing much in the kitchen until this week. So one of my first project was to use up those apples that have been sitting on my cupboard.
To make my version of Apple Crisp, I use the following ingredients to make the crust and topping.
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup oatmeal
¾ cup butter
Combine flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal. Mix in butter until mixture resembles crumbs.
Reserve 1 cup of mixture for topping.
Press remaining crumbs into a 9 x 13 cake pan.
Top crust with at thick layer of fresh sliced apples.
Just to give you an idea of how large those Wolf River apples are, I only used three of them to fill the pan.
After the apples are placed on top of the crust I cook the following ingredients over a medium heat, until thickened.
3 tab cornstarch
¼ teas cinnamon (I like lots of cinnamon, so I use about a teaspoon's worth)
1 teas salt
1 cup water
1 cup white sugar
Pour the mixture over the apples.
Then top with the reserved crumb mixture.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
Let cool a little bit. We like our crisp warm with a little whipped cream or ice cream.
Apple Crisp...... one of the must makes for fall.
And, that's the way it is.....................
