Apple Crisp

Something funky is going on with my Blog...all my pictures are in html form until I actually publish which makes it crazy to know where to write??? So I will write it all here and you can scroll down to see the pictures?

We make this dish all the time here...sometimes for breakfast and sometimes for dessert. Start with 8 medium to large apples...I use Fuji or Gayla...peel and slice into thin strips. Place in a large casserole dish with a lid. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top.....there isn't an exact science depends on your taste....I put about 2 Tablespoons of each on mine. Top with 4 slices of butter.

Cover and microwave for 10 min. take out and stir the mixture well....cook for another 10 min. They are done when they are very soft but not mush.....Many times we eat them with our dinner just like topping just the apples..yummy!

You may need to put them back in the microwave if they are not quite ready.


2 cups old fashion oats(this would be the kind you have to cook)
2/3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar(you can substitute 3/4 c honey)
1 stick butter....softened

mix all together in a large will seem as if it will not mix....just keep stirring and mashing with the back of a large spoon until you have a crumbly mixture.

Using a 9 x 13 or metal....scoop the apples out with a slotted do not want all the juice...don't try to drain just spoon over into the larger bowl so that you keep some juice.

Using the back of your spoon, smooth the apples out evenly in the pan. Sprinkle the crumbly mixture all over the top of the apples. Bake for 40 minutes on 375.

This was absolutely one of our favorite Helm's recipes! We all loved it when this accompanied a meal from you.
