Recipe Exchange - September 2012

I came across this recipe on a blog while hunting for something to do with the box of apples my husband had cut up and put in the fridge. Once tried, it was declared delicious and quickly added it to our favorites list. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Fast & Easy Apple Crisp

4 large or 5 regular Granny Smith, Newtown
Pippin, Gravenstein or other pie apples
1 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. unbleached flour
1 c. oats
1 1/2 sticks margarine or butter (softened)
2 tsp. cinnamon

Cut up apples into chunky bite size pieces with skin on or off and put into greased 9x13 GLASS casserole dish. (It makes it more moist and cooks the apples quicker.) Mix ingredients together. Butter will be lumpy. It works best if you work it with your hands. Pour over apples and smooth out. Bake at 375° for 20-30 minutes. Eat warm or cooled. Delicious with ice cream or other non-dairy frozen dessert.

Note: This salad also makes a great dip. Serve with cut veggies, crackers, or pita chips.
