apples to crisp
If 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.
