Our apple tree still has a few apples on it that haven't fallen off yet so mom and I decided to make an apple crisp!
This is the first time we have ever made this recipe. Dad does not like oatmeal in his apple crisp and we did find one without oatmeal.
You should be able to biggify the recipe.
We've chopped the apples and added our cinnamon and ground nutmeg and it's ready for the oven. All we have to do is cover it with foil and in it goes! **The recipe calls for the chopped apples to bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven but we found that some of the apples were a tad bit crunchy so next time, mom will be baking the apples for at least 35 minutes.
We don't have a food processor and we also like our nuts to be coarse and chunky rather than finely chopped so we chopped ours with this chopper. Dad's favorite nuts are walnuts so we used a cup of walnuts rather than half walnuts and half pecans.
Our walnut, brown sugar, flour, salt and butter topping is prepared and we're waiting for the hot apples to come out of the oven so we can sprinkle on this mixture and continue baking the apple crisp for another 30 minutes.
It's out of the oven and it looks and smells delicious!
What do you think about serving it with rum raisin ice cream, mom?
Wait until dad comes home and discovers that we've made him an apple crisp for dessert! Won't he be surprised and happy!
**Dad was surprised and LOVED the apple crisp! We'll be making this recipe again and again!
