It is apple picking time, and time for apple pies, applesauce, apple butter, apple crisp, apple cake . . . . . .
What is your favorite apple dessert? My all-time favorite is apple crisp.
We were discussing apple crisp recipes in one of my groups recently and they asked for my favorite recipe. Here it is ~
8 cups peeled apples, sliced
1/2 cup raisins (I prefer mine without)
1/2 cup walnuts
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup quick oatmeal
1 cup flour
1/2 cup margarine
1 jar Smucker's caramel topping
Mix all ingredients for dessert (apples, nuts, sugar, cinnamon, flour). Place in 9x13" pan. Mix all ingredients for topping. Sprinkle over apples. Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes. Serve warm. Drizzle with caramel topping. Add scoop of ice cream.
If your apples are sweet to begin with, you may want to cut back a little on the sugar that is mixed with the apples. Use 1 cup instead.
Apple crisp DEMANDS caramel topping and vanilla ice cream!!
It reheats really well in the microwave. Just put one serving in a dish, reheat until warm, add the caramel and ice cream and enjoy.
A funny story. My husband was going to get me a dish of apple crisp and I told him I wanted it warmed up in the microwave, so he puts the ice cream on top and THEN microwaves it. :o) So I ate apple crisp with warm cream. That was okay, but it is much better warm with cold, frozen ice cream.
