As I mentioned a while ago, I've had the itch to bake, I didn't really care what it was, but I wanted to bake SOMETHING. Well, here was my opportunity. I have an amazing apple crisp recipe that I always use (it's from the King Arthur Flour cookbook), but seeing as all of my cookbooks are stored away in a storage location, we needed to improvise. I looked online, and found an extremely simple recipe that I decided to go with. I improvised a big, so here's what we did:
2 1/2 cups oatmeal (I don't think it matters if it's quick oats or old fashioned, but I used old fashioned)
2 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
2 sticks melted butter
6 cups apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
3/4 cup white sugar
- Mix together the oatmeal, flour and brown sugar with a fork.
- Add in the melted butter, mix initially with the fork, and then get your hands in there and mix it until it is crumbly
- Put half of the crumble mixture into a greased 9x13 pan
- Spread the apples on top of the crumble mixture
- Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on top of the apples (I just eyeballed the cinnamon. The original recipe called for about 4 teaspoons, but I didn't measure it).
- Put the other half of the crumble mixture on the top
- Bake in a pre-heated 350* oven for about 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown
Note: Assuming 20 servings (which is a VERY generous portion)
