Foodie Friday: Apple Crisp

I know for many of you fall arrived a month or so ago, but I’m in California and we don’t have the same seasons as most of you. ;) Now that we have finally had a day or 2 in the 60s I felt it was time to start some fall baking, and fall baking just isn’t complete without an apple crisp. So here is the recipe for the one I like to make.
  • 4-6 peeled, cored and chopped apples (I prefer granny smith)
  • 1 1/2 cups of old fashion oats
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp flour
  • apple pie spice
  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
Preheat your oven to 375* and while it is preheating toss the chopped apples with about 1/2 teaspoon to a teaspoon of the apple pie spice.

In a separate bowl mix the brown sugar, oats, flour and an additional 1/2 tablespoon of apple pie spice together. Once those are mixed together well chop the stick of butter in chunks and add it to the mix. I like to mix this with my hands his the warmth from the help to soften the butter. Once the butter is well incorporated sprinkle it on top of your apples. DSCF2013
Now you simply bake it in the oven for 40-45 minutes and it comes out looking like this . . .

This really should be a dessert, but from time to time I will let the kids have it for breakfast as well!! Aside from the amount of sugar in it I like to consider it a baked oatmeal breakfast. ;)

  1. Looks delicious! Being from SoCal I like to pretend it gets cold and pop in a fall dessert like this once in a while. ;)

    1. LoL. I'm currently in the desert so we have been getting in the 40s and 50s at night. It's as close as I can get to fall.

    1. It's really good, but so not healthy at all. Meh, you win some and you lose some.
