I asked PhilBillPaul for the apple crisp recipe he made last week.
He willingly shared the recipe he found at Allrecipes.com but I think it’s important you know about the changes he made right from the start.
He DOUBLED the topping. Then he put just one quarter of it on the bottom and the remaining three quarters on the top.
Frankly, I’m surprised he even put apples in it. Because he likes fruit almost as much as he likes vegetables.
Which is hardly at all.
Sad, I know but I knew this when I married him and I’ve accepted it.
- 1 C all-purpose flour
- 3/4 C rolled oats
- 1 C brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 C butter, melted
- 4 C peeled, cored and sliced apples
- 1/2 C white sugar
- 1 T cornstarch
- 1/2 C water
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350º In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir until crumbly. Press half the oat mixture into a 9×13 inch baking dish. Cover with sliced apples.
In a medium saucepan, combine white sugar, cornstarch, water and vanilla. Cook, stirring, until thick and clear, 10 minutes. Pour over apples. Cover apples with remaining crumble mixture. Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes, until bubbly and golden.
Vanilla bean ice cream optional but highly recommended.
One more thing sort of related to apples.
On Monday, I forgot to tell you that on our way home from the apple orchard that we found our perfect mountain cabin.
The view from the deck…
Check out the grill area on the deck…
Truly a glorious place on 5 acres.
Anyone want to go in halfsies?
