Apple Crisp For 2 :)

Apple Crisp reminds me of old fall days. My Mom would gather a box or two of apples from a local tree that had extra, and we would have apples everywhere. Both fridge drawers would be filled, a box by the door, and/or a box in the garage would be loaded with apples. Depending on what type she she gathered, she would adjust if sugar needed to be added.

In Florida, I have not seen any apple trees. I do however want to plant a mango tree in my yard. I have made mango crisp before and MY-OH-MY is that grand!

Every bite of this Apple Crisp reminds Dan and I of our childhood homes. Dang is it good. Try it soon! It is simple, quick, and tastey:) The way that the cold icecream blends with the warm Apple Crisp is perfect, and the tart apples pair perfectly with the sweet crunchy topping. Mmmmm.....:)


Apple Crisp For 2 :)

Ingredients


3 cups peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples. (about 3 apples)

1/3 packed brown sugar


1/4 cup flour (full 1/4 cup)

1/3 cup oats

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3 TB real butter

1Tb real butter

1/2 TB margarine (for greasing pan)

Extra sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar


Directions

Peel and slice apples ass you would for a pie (so fairly thin)

Grease bread loaf pan with margarine

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Put apples in greased loaf pan

Cut 1 TB butter over the apples

Sprinkle the extra brown sugar and cinnamon over apples - Set aside.

In a separate bowl put oats, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir.

Drizzle 3 TB melted butter over flour oat mixture.

Mix until well mixed

Crumble oat topping over the apples in loaf pan.

Bake uncovered at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until browned and a little crisp looking. (The topping will harden a little after being pulled from the oven.)

Remove from oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

This is a pretty forgiving recipe. You can add more or less apples as you please. Also I use approximate measures on the flour, oat, brown sugar, cinnamon measurements in the topping.

I have doubled the recipe to make enough for 5-8 people.
