I wanted to cook this past weekend. I wanted to make something sweet, easy, and it had to contain apples. (I had a bunch of frozen apples that I wanted to use up.) So I decided I would make an apple crisp.
I don’t have a recipe for apple crisp. And I was too lazy to go upstairs and look for one on the Internet. I thought, I don’t need no stinkin’ recipe! I’ll just make one up.
It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. (The apples were a little mushy, but they were getting mushy before I froze them. Which was the whole reason I froze them in the first place!) The recipe follows; however, I didn’t measure a darn thing when I was making it! I just literally threw this together.
Felia’s Homemade Apple Crisp
- 3 apples, cored and chopped
- 1 Tbls. cinnamon + 2 Tbl. cinnamon
- 3 Tbls. brown sugar + 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 Tbl. lemon juice
- 1 tsp salt + 1 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbl butter + 2 Tbl butter, melted
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
Combine apples, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tsp salt and lemon juice. Layer in the bottom of dish (I used a pie pan, but whatever you have on hand will be just fine.) Cut up 1 tablespoon of butter and dot the pan with it.
Combine the remaining ingredients, and cover the apples in the dish. Bake at a 350 oven for 30 minutes, or until crisp.
Feel free to tweak, add, or remove whatever you wish! I figure: you can’t mess up apple crisp TOO bad!
