apples to crisp

chopperIf you live in the northeast, the time is ripe for apple picking.  Apparently with all of the heat from the summer, the apple-picking season is well underway with many varieties available.  In our house, we always get carried away and return home with way too many apples. A great kid-involved project for post picking: crisp!  And three kid-specific tools to make this really fun: corer, peeler, & chopper.   All available at the small hands web site fairly inexpensively.

This apple crisp recipe is super simple and gets gobbled down in no time:

About 12 apples peeled, cored and chopped.  Sprinkle with juice from ½ lemon and cinnamon.

Mix 1 C flour, 1 C sugar & 1 stick soft butter.

Combine ¾ of mixture with apples, put in casserole, sprinkle remaining mixture on top.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

  1. Love apple crisp…have some apples that I have been intending to turn into apple crisp for a while now..oops …just have to get there. That is a very neat tool..like to have kid friendly stuff. Thanks for sharing!

    • Went apple picking last weekend and made three batches of crisp – to one batch we added blueberries – delicious!

      If you make extra of the topping, you can have on hand for really quick crisp!
