So here are pictures of my grand kids on Halloween night - it's the first Halloween ever that I think we have not spent with at least some of them :( But my girls were sure to send me pictures -
|Paisley, Prince and Zamarah as Minions!|
|Kamili as Bat Girl and Makai as Wonder Woman!|
|Zavian as Captain America and Kyan as Iron Man!|
|Here's the entire crew lined up and ready to hit the streets for CANDY!|
Here's a picture of the pan - this makes a small cake pan full - this pan was 7" x 11" and is what I used the recipe below for. If you are using a regular size cake pan - you'd probably want to half it again or even double it. You can fill the pan to the very top, as it cooks down some as it bakes.
And I meant to show this ala-mode picture before I started eating it - but my appetite got the better of me :)
I also took the peelings - a cup of water and some cinnamon and simmered it on the stove - it make the entire house smell amazing and I was able to do it again the next day with the same pot of peelings before having to throw them. Such a warm, cozy feeling in the house when you do this.
So finally - here is the recipe - please let me know if you try it and what you think. I like it best when it is still warm out of the oven with vanilla ice cream. But it is good cold too! Not that it lasts long around here. Enjoy - and stop back soon! ~Maureen
Apple Crisp - YUMMY!
5-6 big apples (I'm biased towards Granny Smith, but Granny Smith and Honeycrisp mixed are great too.)
1/4 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup water mixed
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 stick cold butter sliced into about 8 pats
Peel your apples, and slice them into a buttered casserole dish or cake pan.
Pour the lemon juice mixture over apples.
Generously sprinkle cinnamon on top - use as much or little as you wish - I love cinnamon - so mine were covered pretty well.
Combine flour, brown sugar and butter into a pretty bowl with your fingers till crumbly. You could also use a pastry cutter for this - but I like using my fingers for this step.
Pour crumbles evenly over the top of apples.
Put in the oven at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until nice and golden brown.
EAT AND ENJOY!!
