Here’s a flash back to one of my FAVORITE recipes of all time – APPLE CRISP! I just had to re-post for all of you who missed it in 2009. It’s the ONLY Apple Crisp Recipe you’ll ever need. Enjoy!!
Ella and I LOVE to be in the kitchen together. She is quite the little helper. It doesn’t matter if I’m taking out a frozen pizza or making a Thanksgiving Meal, she is right there beside me!
We’ve been making quite a few trips over the past few weeks to our local Orchard called The Apple Barn. They have the most amazing little store full of fresh baked goodies and bread, canned jams and jellies, fresh eggs, butter and cheese, homemade apple cider, mums, pumpkin and of course, APPLES! We’ve been eating them with every meal and every snack. They are just too darn good!
We first made an Apple Crisp recipe I found online and it was YUKO! But, I called up my mother-in-law who makes the best Apple Crisp and asked her to share her recipe with me. It’s always so good and it was exactly what we had been craving!
So, here we go!
Apples, peeled (or not) and sliced into an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9.
½ C. Apple Cider or Water (I used Cider)
½ C. flour
1 ½ C. sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
Cinnamon, nutmeg, (other spices if desired—e.g. clove, all spice) I just use the first two.
½ C. ( 1 stick) butter or margarine. I use butter.
Pour cider or water over fruit. Put all dry ingredients together. Put egg on top; stir. Crumble mixture over fruit.
Melt butter and drizzle over the top.
Bake in greased 8 x 8 at 375 for 30 minutes.
Top with Cool Whip or Vanilla Ice Cream and ENJOY!
I promise that this will turn out perfectly for you if you follow the directions above. So go ahead and make it for your next family dinner or pot-luck – you’ll be the hit of the party and everyone will be asking for more!2
