My grandsons stayed overnight on Thursday. Carson got into a little trouble and was grounded from TV and Wii. Blimpy Girl NeeNee decided we could we could work together in the kitchen. We made an apple crisp (a favorite for Carson). We enjoyed our project and the boys learned something new.
I discovered an apple crisp recipe dating back to the early 1970’s. I’m fairly certain the recipe book was a wedding gift from my first marriage (my daughter’s Dad). My grand son loved that I used this recipe while married to his Poppa.
So, with stories shared, here is the recipe (not exactly Blimpy Girl style, but heck… call it a splurge).
Spread in pan:
4 cups sliced apples (we used a grater since the boys are too young to handle a kitchen knife)
Sprinkle apples with 1/4 cup water, 1 teaspoons cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
In a separate bowl add1 cup sugar (I used Splenda), 3/4 cups flour and 1/3 cup butter (whipped-low fat kind). Mix with a pastry blender until crumbly. Spread mixture over the apples.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. Serve while warm. Makes 6 servings. Calories… you don’t need to know, it’s a splurge item *wink*.
