There is a cool breeze blowing,
the leaves are drifting down,
and the smell of apple crisp is in the air!
This morning in between home schooling, I made
up an apple crisp for our lunch today. I had a little
helper, as you can see! Miss E was my chief taste
tester- she decided sugar tastes a whole lot better
than flour! She loves to help me cook, which makes
me happy, but I think what she likes best is sampling
everything. Her brothers aren't too happy about this,
but what can I say? She's just so cute...
Apple crisp is a great way to enjoy the flavors of
fall without being as time consuming as a pie.
It also works very well to make it gluten free,
just use a gluten free flour blend in place of
the regular flour. Here's the recipe I use all the time-
6 c. peeled and sliced apples
3/4 c. white sugar
1 T. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix and place in a greased 9x9 inch baking dish.
3/4 c. oatmeal
3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. melted butter
1/4 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Mix above till crumbly and place on top of apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Serve warm with whip cream or ice cream!
