Apple Crisp

HerNameIsBuffy

615 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.

      Considering she showed the receipt, I don’t think she got them for free. If she did, she certainly went to great lengths attempting to pretend she paid for them herself. 

      Another thought: If she intends to become pregnant again, it makes sense to keep buying maternity clothes. However, if this is supposed to be her last baby, buying multiple dresses at 8 or 9 months pregnant seems wasteful. 

       

      Wait, did she say this?? I must have missed it. I was under the impression that she was still intending to be quiverfull.

      I love my children’s creativity. I probably praise them too much for it. Anytime my children create something, I want them to tell me all about it. I imagine so much creativity is squashed in fundieland because it doesn’t adhere to one of their many narrow views.

      Baby Nova once brought me three leaves with holes poked for eyes and mouths and told me it was a family portrait. You better believe I mounted and framed it. It hung in the hallway for more than a decade until the leaves finally disintegrated.

      Acknowledgment of our children's efforts is critical to their emotional growth and well being. It seems so small to us but criticism for a "junk sculpture" can be crushing to a little person. Children are not inconveniences to work around and squeeze into the corners of our lives. They aren't meant to be dressed up and trotted out once a week for an Insta pic. Most importantly, kids should never be a prop for fragile eggshell personalities who lack internal strength.

      In keeping with the discussion in the JRod thread, I did find something else to like about this film -- the wood boxes in the first scene:

      and the pottery in a scene near the end (not my exact style, but nice):

      But then, there's this:

      And this:

      In which Doug admires the fact that Kelly's hair went from jet black with the dye the Lenape had put on it for 10 years, to gleaming blonde (and a whole other texture!) in only one bath. Oddly, her roots are still somewhat darker.

      The Lord works in mysterious ways.

      I like the spelling "wiennie." Makes them sound more elegant somehow, like something from Old Vienna, to be enjoyed with a fine wine.
