Apple Crisp and More

[donotprint]A couple weeks ago, we again headed over to Reid’s Orchard and picked up three more different bags of apples: Fuji, Golden Delicious and Winesap. Of course we had to have a taste test after they were dried.

After tasting all three, we agreed that both Fuji and Winesap tasted better than Golden Delicious. However, they are all keepers.

Meanwhile, I’ve made a couple apple crisps. This is another recipe from More with Less Cookbook with just a little tweaking.

Adapted from More With Less Cookbook

Combine the following and put in greased baking dish.

3 cups chopped apples

1 tablespoon of flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon of water


Combine together the following ingredients. I like to mix this up with my hands. Sometimes if I want a little more topping, I’ll add more oats.

1/2 cup of rolled oats

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup margarine or butter

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

Sprinkle topping on top of the apple mixture and bake 35 minutes or until brown at 375 degrees.

This apple crisp was especially good. I used mostly fuji apples.

I also made some almond biscotti for my friend Joy and Marsha’s hubby Tony.

You can find the recipe HERE. The only change I made was to roast the almonds. What a difference that makes!!
