We are so fortunate to have wonderful neighbors. We spent many nights this summer in any one of our backyards chatting, watching the kids play, and enjoying some wine, sometimes by a fire with some smores. After choosing this community 4 1/2 years ago, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. So, anyway, back to our wonderful neighbors. We have been kept stocked with rhubarb, strawberries, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, and most recently apples thanks to their generosity. Some of us have gardens and then share our bounty with others. So, after receiving a bucket of apples this last weekend, I have been busy making apple cake, applesauce and apple crisp. I thought I would share my Mom’s Apple Crisp recipe. It doesn’t get much better than this!
Mom’s Apple Crisp
Use a 8 or 9 inch baking dish. Slice apples into the pan until almost full. Sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and add 2 T of water. Stir them around. Then in a small bowl, mix 1/3 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 T of butter. Crumble over the top of the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I think it is best served warm with vanilla ice cream.
Every time I make it, the smell reminds me of home. I can’t wait to have a bowl tonight!
