Apples!






Happy weekend friends!  I hope you get to do the things you enjoy with the people you love this weekend.  In case you are planning to pick apples, I thought I'd re-post this apple crisp recipe.  It is super easy and oh so yummy.  We picked so many apples that we made three crisps and still had apples left over.  Enjoy!

Apple Crisp

Filling:
2 1/2 lb. apples (about 6 medium) peeled, quartered, cored, and sliced
2-3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon all purpose flour

Crisp topping:
1 cup all purpose flour
5 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (pecans are a good choice) 
1 stick butter, cut into small pieces and chilled

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

To make filling, toss the apples with sugar, cinnamon, and flour.

Add filling to a 9" pie pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

To make topping, in a medium bowl mix together all the topping ingredients with a pastry cutter (a fork works just fine) until small pebbly pieces of butter are distributed throughout mixture.
Sprinkle entire mixture over the apples.  Bake until the topping is golden and the fruit is bubbling and tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

  7. An apple eating dog? Too funny! I will have to give that crip a try. we just found out the apple orchard we visit in Wisconsin is very low on apples because of our crazy spring weather.
