Apple crisp, my way
When the leaves turn colors, people begin to long for the seasonal favorite, Apple Crisp! But apple crisp doesn't need to be just a fall thing! I mean come on, it is delicious. Now I know there are a million and one ways to make it and everyone claims theirs is the best. I claim nothing! This is just the way I do it and the way our family has come to enjoy this treat.
My family recipe..... First you need to peel and slice apples. How many you ask? As many as you want or until your hand begins to cramp from peeling! Don't forget to core them as well. Now we are ready to get started......
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
Combine and add to the desired amount of peeled, cored, sliced apples, coating them well. Place apples in baking pan.
1 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Butter
This makes a crumbly dough. Crumble or pinch off pieces and place over the top of the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for around 30 to 45 minutes. After the crisp cools, combine milk and powder sugar in a bowl to make as much or as little glaze to drizzle over the top.
Now you could eat it right away and we always have a piece but I love it even more after it has been refrigerated. Let me just say, this is so addictive that I had to pack my son some in his school lunch! He loves it that much. So why not whip some up and enjoy one of our family traditions. I promise, it's good!
