Apple Crisp

My regular scheduled grocery shopping day is a few days away and this weekend my husband and I were craving something sweet. He offered to make his potato candy, but that would have been just a quick fix. I wanted something that would last until I could get to the store this week. So, first I looked through our pantry to see what I had that would make a great dessert.

I usually try to keep something in there to make in an emergency. Mostly, I do this in the winter when there's always a chance of getting snowed in for a few days. Today, I found a large can of peaches in there and I do make a really good peach cobbler, so that was my first option. Then, I decided to look through my recipes for an idea and that's when I found my Apple Crisp recipe.

This is perfect because I have a bag of apples that I need to use before they go bad. So, Apple Crisp it is. Below is my recipe. I only wish I had some ice cream to go with it.

Apple Crisp
3 c. of sliced apples
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. rolled oats
1 c. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1 c. water

Place apples in a buttered baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 c. brown sugar and add water. Mix together the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well blended. Sprinkle over the apples and dot with butter or margarine. Bake at 350° f. for 30-35 minutes or until the apples are tender. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Hot apple crisp and ice cream! OM-nom-nom-nom-nom-nom! So, like, you're bringing enough of this for everyone to the next Quills and Quibbles meeting, have I got that right? ;)
