Apple Crisp

As the cool fall weather hits, we all start dreaming of those wonderful comfort foods... crisp! Its like a pie, but easier!

Sean makes me double the topping.

The recipe calls for quick oats, and I never buy quick oats. So I use old fashioned oats that have been given a quick whir in the food processor. Actually, I only whir about half of the oats, and I keep the other half old fashion-y.

Apple Crisp
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

and peel enough apples to fill an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish about 3/4ths full.

For the topping:

1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter

Combine oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and dash salt. Cut in butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumb mixture over all. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve with ice cream. Serves 6.

You shoulda been here Labor Day weekend when Sandy made a huge peach crisp because we had too many fresh peaches. We found some leftover carmel from apple carmel snacks and sent Aileen on an ice cream run. Thot I'd died and gone to heaven!
