Apple Crisp

by Sara  We went apple picking with Kids in the Capital on Sunday at Cannemore Orchard.  We had a great time with all our friends and came home with two huge bags of apples. 

What was the first thing we did?  We baked an apple crisp! 

It's a recipe that I copied from my parents onto a tattered recipe card.  Its one of the first things I learned to bake.  It's not the fanciest recipe but its the one I grew up with and the one my boys have always baked with me.  

Wash and peel 4-6 medium apples.  Core and slice (thin) 


Melt 1/2 cup of butter and mix with: 3/4 cup rolled oats 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup flour 1 tsp cinnamon 

Second favourite part: mixing 

Grease a 9x9 pan, spread the apples slices in the bottom, and crumble the topping mixture on top. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees 

Now we wait... 

And don't forget the vanilla ice cream.  Or frozen yogurt if you're Losing It, like me!
