Apple Crisp

HerNameIsBuffy

540 views

I was planning on making an apple crisp today and thought it would be fun to blog it, in light of Jill's attempt which looked like potato wedges covered in gravy.

It turns out I won't be eating crisp, but rather humble pie.  For the first time I had to fuss over mine to get it to come out right and in the end it's tasty...but ugly.

I'm blaming a Duggarville curse.

Oh, another Duggar tie in is that with the exception of the cinnamon I got everything at Aldi.)

Ingredients:

(This makes enough to fill a 9x13 pan full - so for a normal size batch you can halve the amounts.)

  • 8 heaping cups of fresh apples
  • 1.5 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup butter (room temp) (or 2/3 - see instructions below)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375 and  butter 9x13 pan.  I love spray butter so much.

Peel and core apples.  I use one of those apple corer/slicer things which cuts them into sections as you'd use for apple pie.  That thing is a time saver, worth every penny of the couple bucks I spent on it 10 years ago.  

Spread apples evenly in buttered pan.

In a large bowl cut the other ingredients together with a pastry cutter until combined.

Cover apples evenly with mixture and bake for about 45 minutes.  Ovens and apples vary so check after about 30.  When done the apples will be soft and sauce will be bubbly like pie and the top will be golden and crispy.

(originally I had used 2/3 cup of butter but after a half hour it was too dry so i sliced the remaining 1/3 into pats and added to the top and baked for another 15 minutes.  I've never had to do this before so either it was the Duggarville curse or these apples weren't as juicy as others I've used n the past.)

Let stand for a while.  Some serve crisp with ice cream, but we're not huge fans of a la mode in my family so we eat it straight.  As God intended.

You insult me. If we are going to sit and BS, of COURSE I'll bring wine. LOL. I might also bring a cider I think you would like.

This looks great! I might actually make this one.

Though I gotta say, the apple crip is one of the less snark-worthy recipes on Jill's blog. She's not good at photography but the recipe is basically just baked fruit with streusels. As a dessert, totally acceptable. Now if Jill had arranged it nicely on a cute plate and decorated with some ice cream, a bit of powdered sugar and a mint leaf...but hey, creativity is not on the SOTDRT curriculum and I prefer my desserts right out of the pan too. LOL

I made an apple dessert on Sunday. It was apple crumble, which is somewhat similar to this. The topping is butter/flour/sugar, mixed with the hands until it resembles breadcrumbs. Cover the apples with it. Looks a bit like this:

Some include oats in the topping too, but I don’t.

      It's weird to see how so many pastors have so little problem with murdering their wives.  (Not saying that the Rev. McDonald was seeking a hitman  to off his wife.)  There's that youth pastor in Washington state that murdered his wife and then set fire to the house so that her death might be seen as due to the fire.  Problem was no smoke in the lungs of the dead wife.  Then there was the pastor whose second wife apparently died in a car crash in which he was uninjured.  His first wife died from a fall down the basement steps of so they thought.  He murdered them both.  I could go on because there are many more.

      I wonder if they’re just cynical and don’t really believe what they’re preaching, or if the whole “personal relationship with Jesus//God answers me in prayer and ‘lays things on my heart’” just naturally leads to an assumption that “my strong feelings” = “God’s will.”

      I’ve always suspected that Josh would prefer a smaller family.  Anna, however, has made no secret of the fact that she wants “as many as God sends”. I wonder if Josh might have drawn the line at four but then all the scandals came to light.  The joyous time after the birth of a healthy baby was spoilt for Anna when Josh’s past behaviour and then current Ashley Madison affair was discovered and publicised. I can understand Anna’s desire to have another baby after Meredith and after Josh’s return from “rehab”, she was cheated out of the joy of a new baby by Josh’s behaviour and had to be a single parent whilst he was reforming himself. Perhaps part of their “deal” is that Josh had to agree to more children in order for Anna to forgive him. She appears to be a good mother and homemaker and to genuinely love and want her children. I hope that at the very most they stop at eight rather than keep adding to their brood. Josh needs to find some business venture that he can throw himself into and be challenged and develop and grow. His past behaviour was atrocious. His future just seems so mundane and boring. He needs to find some dreams. 

      I think Anna is coping with her marriage by throwing herself into her identity as a mom rather than giving Josh attention.

      On this personality test I am a Mediator INFP- A/ INFP-T . 

      On the animal test I am a mole. At first I was like: What??? And then I realised I was sitting in the dark, in the corridor, on the floor, in the cold * and doing a online test instead of lying in bed with Mr. S.. I am totally a mole. But my eyesight is better. 

      * It's my favourite place for browsing through the Internet, our wifi is the best there, I can hear the hamster, I have a soft pillow to sit on and chocolate near me. I was too lazy to get me a blanket, it's pretty cold for the end of May.

      Your words are so much better than mine! Thank you. I didn’t want to sound like I thought child molestation itself isn’t as big a deal as infidelity. 

      I know exactly what you meant, don't worry.

      Without question, at 15, he needed help. Who wouldn't help a 15-year old boy in such a situation? Who would write off such a boy because they decided ahead of time that he was a "monster" and beyond help?

      I used to work with adolescents who had committed crimes. They were not in jail, not even in juvie. They were at a school where people tried to help them. These teens couldn't drive, vote, get a hotel room, rent an apartment, engage in a contract or buy a car because their brains weren't fully developed so they weren't allowed to do these things. In addition, the state didn't hold them fully responsible for the things they'd done. This would not have happened if they were ten years older. 

      When people talk about how Josh would have fared better if he'd gotten "good" therapy by a "licensed counselor", I am skeptical. I am not sure if "good" therapy exists for a teen with a sexual problem--unless he wants to change.  There was a portion of my school where boys with sexual problems were treated. The therapists were among the most qualified in the state.

      Even so, these therapists didn't have many tools in their toolbox. Basically, they encouraged the boys to try to change the subject of their fantasies. I can remember them encouraging the boys to imagine sex in a field of flowers. Basically, the kids were encouraged to find healthier things to get them aroused. It didn't really seem to work. At the time, I was thinking, "That's all you got?" There was no magic bullet that could make those kids want to engage in normal, healthy sexual activity.
