My boyfriend’s mother recently gave us a bag of nice crispy apples. There’s nothing quite like the smell of a fresh bag of apples, no matter how many candle companies try to copy the scent, it’s simply just not the same. Upon their arrival to our home I immediately had to eat one. Don’t get me wrong the apple was delicious but after examining the bag I knew that between just my boyfriend and I, we couldn’t eat ten apples without at least a few going bad. My solution?
Apple Crisp of course. Another intoxicating scent that many candle companies have tried to perfect, but c’mon, nothing beats the smell of your house when you have apple crisp in the oven, or pumpkin pie. Those two scents just cannot be replicated.
So I set to making an ‘easy as pie’ apple crisp, because I like to do things the easy way!
4 apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1)Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Peel and slice your apples.
2) Grease an 8×8 baking pan and put your sliced apples into it.
3) In a separate, medium sized bowl, combine all your other ingredients. I microwaved my butter for about 20 seconds to soften it up. Combine ingredients until you can form them into a crumbly ball. Mine looked something like the photo below.
4) Spread your topping evenly over the apples in the pan.
5) Place in the oven for 30 minutes.
Enjoy immediately! Because there’s nothing better than hot homemade apple crisp! Serve with ice cream if you desire!
This recipe is Pip approved. Just kidding, he didn’t get to try it. He did get a treat for calmly handling being taunted with the apple crisp.
