It's fall (even though the thermostat says it's still summer), and I'm excited about making fall-ish recipes!!! Last week we were housesitting for some friends of ours and were taking a dessert to some other friends of ours. As I pondered what to take, it hit me. The friends we were housesitting for had a tree full of granny smith apples! I would make an apple crisp! I didn't have a go-to apple crisp recipe, so I hit the web, searching for what seemed to be the best apple crisp recipe. I finally landed on one from Tammy's Recipes. So really, all credit should go to her; I just made one tiny change to her recipe.
8 cups cored, peeled, and sliced apples
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2/3 cup flour
1 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cup quick oats
2/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Place apples in prepared pan and pour lemon juice over the apples; mix to evenly coat the apples.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, oats, and butter. Crumble over apples; top with pecans.
|Sorry that only one spot on all of these pictures is in focus. I had to shoot using a large aperture to get enough lighting.|
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until top is golden brown and the apple are soft. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired!
