We’ve had some beautiful fall weather these last couple of weekends. This past Saturday, we decided to spend the morning at a local farm. The kids had a wonderful time seeing the goats, finding their way through the straw maze, and especially picking apples. Perhaps we were a little overzealous in our apple picking. When we made our way up to the cashier, she told us we had over 50 pounds of apples! Yikes! Now I’m on a hunt for good apple recipes so I can hopefully use up a lot of these up before they go bad.
First on my list…a delicious Apple Crumble from the pages of a cookbook from my childhood church. I think the most complicated part of this recipe is peeling and slicing all the apples. It’s good all by itself, but I like to make it even better by serving it warm and topped with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
8 large apples, peeled and sliced
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cinnamon and brown sugar in a bowl.
Line the sliced apples in a 9×13 baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Sprinkle with 1/2 of the cinnamon-brown sugar mixture.
Combine white sugar, flour, egg, salt, and baking powder. Spread over the apple slices.
Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-brown sugar mixture. Pour melted butter or margarine over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
