Apple Crisp For Two

Apple Crisp reminds me of old fall days. My Mom would gather a box or two of apples from a local tree that had extra, and we would have apples everywhere. Both fridge drawers would be filled, a box by the door, and/or a box in the garage would be loaded with apples. Depending on what type she she gathered, she would adjust if sugar needed to be added.

In Florida, I have not seen any apple trees. I do however want to plant a mango tree in my yard. I have made Mango Crisp before and MY-OH-MY is that grand!

Every bite of this Apple Crisp reminds Dan and I of our childhood homes. Dang is it good. Try it soon! It is simple, quick, and yummy:) The way that the cold ice cream blends with the warm Apple Crisp is perfect, and the tart apples pair perfectly with the sweet crunchy topping. Mmmmm.....:)


Apple Crisp For Two

Ingredients

3 cups peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples. (about 3 apples)
1/3 packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour (full 1/4 cup)
1/3 cup oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 TB real butter
1Tb real butter
1/2 TB margarine (for greasing pan)
Extra scant sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar

Directions
Peel and slice apples as you would for a pie (so fairly thin)
Grease bread loaf pan with margarine
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Put apples in greased loaf pan
Cut 1 TB butter over the apples
Sprinkle the extra brown sugar and cinnamon over apples - Set aside.
In a separate bowl put oats, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir.
Drizzle 3 TB melted butter over flour oat mixture.
Mix until well mixed
Crumble oat topping over the apples in loaf pan.
Bake uncovered at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until browned and a little crisp looking. (The topping will harden a little after being pulled from the oven.)
Remove from oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
This is a pretty forgiving recipe. You can add more or less apples as you please. Also I use approximate measures on the flour, oat, brown sugar, cinnamon measurements in the topping.
I have doubled and tripled the recipe to make enough for 5-10 people, using an 8x8 and 7x11, or 9x13.
