Food on Friday

Friday, October 22, 2010

I have never been one to do some of the weekday postings, but since it seems like at least some of you are interested in what/how I cook, I think I will start a new Friday theme of FOOD! Plus I love to talk about cooking anyway, so it will be a nice diversion from whatever ttc-catastrophe has just happened to me.

Today's recipe is my mom's apple crisp! We still have a half of a bag of apples from the orchard sitting on the dining room table. I did make some amazing apple muffins last weekend, too, but maybe that will be next Friday's recipe!

This crisp is very easy and very good. You can even have it for breakfast and not feel guilty, because it is mostly apples and oatmeal.... or at least that is what I tell myself when I'm spooning some into a dish next to my morning fake coffee!!!

Lest you think I am some sort of amazing photographer like this gal or this gal, you should lower your expectations immediately! I don't even have a picture of this crisp! Guess we were too busy digging in...

Here are the ingredients:

6 cups of sliced/peeled apples (I used fuji, but you could definitely use any kind you like!)
1.5 cups of oatmeal (dry)
1/2 cup of flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of softened/mushable butter

Spray an 8x8 glass dish with nonstick spray and arrange the sliced apples in the dish. In a big bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, spices, vanilla, brown sugar, and butter. Stir until it the butter has kind of bonded with the other ingredients to create a crumbly consistency. Cover the apples with this mixture. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes!

And there you have it! You should try it and let me know how it turns out :) Happy cooking!

Yum. My mom has her own apple crisp recipe too :) It's a little different though. We use apples and apple pie filling :)

Mmmmm. That looks SO good! I might have to break out the Betty Crocker apron. :)

My Hubby LOVES apple crisp, and I think I can substitute a GF flour mixture and it would probably come out okay.
What kind of apples do you use?

That sounds awesome. Especially the part about A WHOLE STICK of butter. Now I know why my no-recipe apple "crisp" doesn't turn out quite right...
