apple crisp



Made my first apple crisp of the season on Sunday...once the weather starts getting cooler my head and heart start thinking wistful thoughts of my favorite season, Fall. That means Fall baking and hikes in the woods, trips to the orchards and pumpkin patches. I can't wait! Until then though, here is my early celebratory baking project.

Apple Crisp

4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced (4 cups)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I used 1/4)

Heat oven to 375ºF. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening.
Spread apples in pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients until well mixed; sprinkle over apples.

Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm.
