Cooking Challenge: Apple Crisp

by - Friday, October 08, 2010

Lately I have been obsessed with the honey crisp apples from my farmers market. They are so delicious, the perfect mix of sweet with a little bit of tart and just the right amount of crunch.

Because of their extreme deliciousness, I went a little overboard at the farmer's market last week and picked up way more than I planned to eat as snacks.

I was inspired by Abby's apple crisp recipe to find something fun to do with all the extra apples. I looked at recipes for muffins, cobblers, tarts, but finally settled on simple and delicious apple crisp.

I followed this Betty Crocker recipe.

I peeled and chopped my four apples.

I may have tossed a few of the apple pieces in my mouth as I was going along. Seriously they are just so yummy.

After chopping, I placed the apples in the pan and got working on the dry ingredients.

In a medium bowl, I mixed flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats.

Then came the fun part: Adding the butter and mashing it all together.

Once I finished mashing up the crumbly topping, I spread it across the apples in the pan.

Then I popped the pan into the oven for about 30 minutes.

I forgot to take a picture of the finished product because I was too busy devouring it. It's definitely best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
