It feels as if summer is coming faster than ever… why? Well, the number of bbq’s we’ve been having, the 80+ degree weather, the ice cream trucks, and oh yeah, the number of apples in my house! My mom buys our apples from Costco, the huge premium fuji ones that come in a pack of like 24. That means I have plenty of apples to bake and experiment with.
My little sister is an apple-dessert-eating fiend, so I told her I’d make her something as long as she peeled, cored, and sliced the apples. She agreed and peeled 7 apples for me! It’s just as good as having one of those apple cutting/corer/peeler devices (which I need to get my hands on soon). This apple crisp was quite delicious, but a little on the sweet side. I’d recommend toning down the amount of sugar next time. Other than that, how can you go wrong with baked apples? You can find the recipe on allrecipes HERE.
- 4 apples – peeled, cored and sliced
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- In a 9 inch square baking pan, mix sliced apples with brown sugar. In a large bowl, mix together flour, white sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, beat together egg and melted butter. Stir into flour mixture. Spread evenly over apples.
- Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until topping is golden and crisp.
