So in the short breaks between these fury's of crafting i get in some baking. One of these breaks i decided to make Apple Crisp; one of my personal favorite fall desserts. I found this recipe while searching the links for the Holiday Sweet Swap. It was simple and looked delicious so i gave it a try, with a few modifications to make it "healthy." It was quite yummy, though next time i make it i will be taking my hubby's suggestion and adding a pinch of salt to cut down on the super sweet flavor. Plus salt just seems to bring out the best flavor in every dish.
Adapted From Megs everyday indulgence
6-8 Apples, Peeled, cored and sliced thinly (your choice of apple)
1/8 C. Granulated Sugar
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1 C. All-purpose flour
1/2 C. Whole wheat flour
1 1/4 C. Brown sugar
1 C. Butter, softened
2 C. Oats
prep apples. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place apples into 9 x 13 pan. Mix granulated sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over apples, set aside. Mix together flours, brown sugar, oats, and softened butter until dough forms a crumb like texture, (i used a pastry blender but you can probably do this in a mixer). Sprinkle crumbles over apples and bake for 40-60 minutes, depending on how your oven cooks (mine only took 45 minutes). The Crisp should be golden brown and bubbly. Let cool for a few minutes and serve warm with ice cream, or however you like it and Enjoy!!
