Recipe: Apple Crisp

You know how it goes. There’s always a guest or two who, for one reason or another, doesn’t like the dessert or they’re allergic to something in the dessert. There you are, the hostess without the most-est. And, for whatever reason, you ran out of time to make another dessert. After all, you were cooking turkey, dressing, your grandmother’s green bean casserole recipe, and the sweet potatoes. Oh yeah! Been there. Done that. Not to worry. Make this recipe. Quick. Easy. Warm. Ooey-gooey apple and cinnamon Da-Lish-C-ocity. Especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, which you probably had some anyway to go on top of the pecan pie.

Apple Crisp

4 apples, peel, core and slice
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter

Butter the baking dish and place apples in the dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Blen flour, sugar, butter and water together to form crumb mixture. Spread over apples and bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

(Mimi’s note at the bottom of the page in ‘the book’: Peaches may be substituted in this recipe for the apples. Use 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg when using peaches.)

Y’all Enjoy! 🙂
