• Apple Crisp

    (Serves 6)

    Ingredients:

    • 5-6 apples
    • 2/3 cup brown sugar
    • ½ cup flour
    • ½ cup oats
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
    • 1/3 cup butter (or vegetable oil)

    Instructions:

    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Wash the apples.
    3. Peel the apples.
    4. Slice the apples. We used an apple slicer that cuts out the core and sections the apple. You can also use a knife: Cut the apple in pieces and cut away the core.
    5. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, flour, oats, and cinnamon.
    6. Cut in the butter: Using a fork or a pastry cutter, mash it into the dry ingredients until you have crumbs the size of small peas. It can help to soften the butter first.
    7. If you use oil instead of butter, mix it in with the dry ingredients.
    8. Spread the apples in a pie plate or a square baking pan. Sprinkle or spread the crumbs on top.
    9. Bake for 30-35 minutes until apples are softened and the crumbs are browned.

    Options:

    • You can substitute other fruits for the apples.
    • You can use a can of pie filling instead of the apples.
    • In the summer, if you don’t want to heat up the oven, you can make this in a glass baking dish in the microwave. It’s not exactly the same as oven baked, but it’s good! Microwave for two minutes at a time until the apples are softened.
