Well it’s that time of year again… my favorite time of year! It’s time for apple picking and apple baking! Last weekend my mom, my brothers girlfriend Meghan, and I went apple picking and got some amazing macintosh and cortland apples, which happen to be the best for baking.
We had such a good time and the weather was perfect! But, I know that’s not why you came on here, so lets get down to the delicious stuff… the apple crisp! Ever since I started working at Gillette we have apple crisp a lot and I crave it constantly so I knew thats what I needed to make with these apples.
In order to make apple crisp you must have the following ingredients:
4 Medium Sized Apples (Skinned, Coored, & Sliced) – I used Macintosh
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Dried Oats
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon (Never enough cinnamon.. I may add a little more than a teaspoon)
3/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/3 Cup Butter (Softened)
*And to finish it you will NEED Ice cream!
Set the Oven to 375 and while thats warming up get mixing! This recipe is really easy and quick once you have skinned, coored, and sliced the apples then it goes real fast.
Once the apples have been cut spread them out amongst an 8×8 Pan that has been greased, I like to use Pam baking, but it’s your preference really. In a seperate bowl mix those other ingredients together and dont be afraid to get your hands a little dirty when mixing in that butter. Once those are mixed together spread it on top of the apples and at that point your oven should be ready to bake!
Baking time is about 30minutes or until the top crust is golden brown and the apples are tender.
The end result not only taste good but it makes the house smell delicious like fall and the whole family will love you for baking!
