Apple Crisp

Over the past few years I have found that I really have a love of cooking. Maybe that is because I didn't grow up with anything fancy or maybe its my way of creating but I really do love it. Part of the reason I like to cook is to satisfy the tastes of my family. Now when I say I love to cook I mean cook, not bake. I will bake occasionally and when I do my husband usually loves it. This is his favorite fall desert. He would describe it as a oatmeal cookie with baked apples. It really is that good. 

Sorry about this first photo, my kitchen at night doesn't have the best lighting. 

This recipe was adapted from 


2 c flour
2 c rolled oats
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground nutmeg
1 1/2 c packed brown sugar
1 1/2 c butter
2 quarts peeled, cored and sliced apples


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Cut butter into the mixture until crumbly

Cut apples and put into bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish

Put the crumb mixture on top of the apples 

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until the apples are tender

Enjoy this yummy, extremely unhealthy treat! Hey sometimes you can enjoy life a little.

It's time to bake

I am really not much of a baker! I would much rather make an awesome dinner than bake treats, which is probably better on my waistline but when I saw this apron I knew I needed to make one for me. Now since I have a cute apron I also jumped full force into the fall baking frenzy. I have been baking up a storm. So you might need to make one of these aprons too so you can bake so delicious treats.
